When it came time to do a “Save the Date” email flyer for the Jane Austen Society of North America: Maryland Chapter’s summer meeting I considered all the usual art work suspects… the limited art work of Jane, art work from earlier editions of the books, something from the movies, fan work… nothing seemed right.
Since the meeting centered on tea followed by a book club where members talked about novels based on Austen’s books I thought why not go to my own shelf of Austen wannabes. An obliging throw blanket acted as back drop and I took the shot with my i-phone. (Since it was never going to go to print and was never going to be blown up very big I was satisfied with the quality of photo. And I loved that I could do the entire pro bono project at no cost. )
