Jarrett Morrison over at the Bowler Press has launched a campaign to fund his next project, an edition of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, issued as a three decker (just like the original) and illustrated with his wood engravings. The entire thing will be set by hand, and probably take the rest of his life. (Actually he intends to issue the first volume in 2013, with about a year between each of the next volumes.) He's even posted a well-made pitch film about the project at IndieGoGo (it's like Kickstarter). He needs $20,000 to lay in materials for the entire project, and is offering a variety of incentives for contributors. If an authentic devotion to 19th century aesthetics and literature is your thing, have a look & think about helping Jarrett make it happen.
