That is so cool!!  I'm into reproducing historical letter styles as well, and putting them into a book is genius.

Isn’t it a great idea? I know there is another person who does historical letters and sends them as newsletters. Very cool!

Jane Austen Letters

A really neat article.

I have never read a JA book instead opting for video versions.  I believe this book shall change that.  Thank you for sharing the link.  What an excellent idea Ms. H. came up with. 

Yessss, found it on Amazon!  In my cart.

I don't think you will regret it. And if you like it, maybe try Pride and Prejudice next - it's one of my all time favorites!

The book in my Amazon cart with the letters is P & P.  :D

I love this and am a huge Jane Austen admirer! I tried to copy Jane's signature a few years back and was satisfied with what I had done.
Baby steps.

This thread has me wanting to actually pay attention to the fine lady's signature.  Wondering what is so spectacular about it.
