With the release of Jane Eyre in cinemas, I have picked up my favorite copy of the Bronte classic. It is just a paperback edition but what makes it special are the illustrations. They are like gothic, Victorian comics. The illustrator is Dame Darcy, a self-proclaimed neo-Victorian.
I scanned this image from my copy. It's Jane as she watches Rochester ride with the beautiful Blanche Ingram.
Check out Dame Darcy at http://www.damedarcy.com/
She is currently donating 30% of proceeds from the purchase of select artwork to the Red Cross Japan Relief effort.
I can not wait to see the new Jane Eyre film. As soon as I can get my mom to watch my babe, AND as soon as it gets to a theatre near me, I will go! Its release date was 3/11, but only in select theatres (New York and LA, of course) Right about now I am missing NYC.
You can find when it will be playing near you on the website. http://www.focusfeatures.com/focusfeatures/film/jane_eyre/
