One of the great things about Jane Austen – besides how incredibly fun and readable her novels are 200 years later – is that we don’t really know what she looked like. Her sister Cassandra left a portrait of her, but that’s about it.

You know how you can hear a person on the radio and get a picture in your head of what they look like? I have done the same thing here, with a little help from Cassandra. This Jane Austen portrait is more or less what she looks like in my head. And, in an effort to give the Great Jane her due, I offer the portrait in three different color palettes:

  • Jewel Tone Jane
  • Terra Cotta Jane
  • Terra Cotta Lavender Jane
