Pride and Prejudice Book Covers

The Atlantic has put together 200 years of Pride and Prejudice book covers for the anniversary on Monday. They featured the first edition title page from 1813, and a copy that is worth over eight thousand dollars! Marvel comics released a Pride and Prejudice comic book adapted by Nancy Butler and  Hugo Petrus, while Seth Grahame-Smith adapted the story with zombies.

Below are my favourite of the bunch, some have intricate details, while others are simple but stunning. It is wonderful to see a novel surpass all this time and still have creative adaptations. To see all the covers and the full Atlantic article, click here.
