When I was younger, I wanted to know what it would be like to be Elizabeth Bennet. She’s clever, witty, and refused to be intimidated by the rich Mr. Darcy. They also attended balls and Elizabeth was always free to go out for walks in the English countryside. Sounds good, right?.
Then the practical side of me pointed out that I would have to say good bye to modern plumbing and medicine. Ugh. Sometimes I wish I could just turn off the logical and sensible side of me just for a little while so I could enjoy certain things in ignorant bliss. 😜
I think my Pride and Prejudice books are the only minimalistic covers that I own that are actually gorgeous too. If I’m honest, a lot of my classics hardbound books go for that minimalistic design. Maybe it’s because the stories are so good, they don’t need flashy covers. Or it also could be just the style of that time—elegant and refined. Whatever the reasons, I love this look and could easily collect more, if money were not an issue! 😉
