What would Lizzie wear?

Published by Running Press, "Austentatious Crochet" walks readers through thirty-six original crochet projects inspired by classic Jane Austen novels. Thirty Bridgeman images were licensed to illustrate this unique book.

For craft enthusiasts and devoted Jane Austen fans, "Austentatious Crochet" combines the two themes beautifully and in a fun and contemporary fashion. Written by Melissa Horozewski, creator of the website www.stitchscene.com and published by Running Press, the book includes thirty-six projects inspired by favorite Austen novels such as "Pride and Prejudice" and "Emma". The step-by-step projects include a cozy cloak, pretty chokers and a delicate lace cardigan and all come with charming names such as "Eat Your Heart Out Willoughby." In addition, the book brings the world of Jane Austen to life with Regency-era illustrations, vignettes, quotes from Austen's most beloved characters and trivia scattered throughout.

Running Press' new book proves once again that Lizzie, Emma and Miss Austen herself never go out of style!

"For the book "Austentatious Crochet," it was important to showcase the modern, Jane Austen-inspired crochet projects, with a reference and nod to the fashion and images from the Regency-period. Bridgeman was my first choice and only art resource for the historical art needed to bring Jane Austen's world to life."
