Since its first publication in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has delighted audiences and spawned more than its fair share of movies, sequels, and offshoots. (Can I get some zombies over here?)
Is it such a surprise? The book is a classic love story whose characters weave their way through a world we don't fully understand but often romanticize. Such admiration for a story is rare and bears testament to the longevity of this book. So you may ask, "How can new life be breathed into it?"
It started when the GoArchitect team was discussing our favorite stories and how people had adapted them into other forms of art. It turns out people LOVE bringing Pride and Prejudice to life with drawings. Is their any wonder why? The drama, scenery, and costumes invite the reader to imagine a world with pomp and plenty of circumstance.
After realizing that this was even a thing, we looked for a way to help this community flourish. After some consideration and research we created a one-of-a-kind book; Pride and Prejudice: Read and Draw Edition.
This book features the same story you love but adds special drawing areas where you can recreate what is happening in the story in your own style. Want to imagine what Mr. Darcy looks like? Or Mr. Collins... OK, we don't know why you'd want to draw Mr. Collins but it's in there.
Bring scenes to life like Elizabeth's and Darcy's first, and contentious, dance. Your drawings don't have to be professional, they just have to be you.
"But I've never read Pride and Prejudice!"
No problem, this book hasn't changed a word from the original and is beautifully designed for easy reading and good company.
As you read through the book, share your drawings with us on Instagram! We would love to see how you imagined the great Pemberley estate.
