I recently read a book called All Roads Lead to Austen. I really enjoyed the book despite the fact that I have never read a book by Jane Austen or seen any of the movies. (That was sort of embarrassing to admit but, it is what is is… ) Anyway, the author is a professor of English literature and a specialist in Jane Austen who teaches at the University of Pacific in Stockton, California. Her project was to travel to Latin American countries and organize book groups to discuss Jane Austen novels. She wanted to see how different cultures interpreted the Austen novels. What i loved about this book is that the author created this outrageous project for herself (much like the mission I am undertaking with this blog) and a lot of unexpected things happened.
Anyway – by reading this book I became privy to the fact that there are Jane Austen groupies out there. And then shortly after the fact I met a real, live, Jane Austen groupie, my new friend, Julie Smith. Julie loves Jane Austen and requested that I try digitizing the Jane Austen typeface.
Who knew there was a Jane Austin typeface? But yes there is… so I downloaded it onto my computer and digitized the one keyword that Julie told me would have meaning for Jane Austen fans: “indeed…” I am thinking about digitizing the entire typeface and wondering if there might be any interest.. Please let me know! But that will be a project for another day.
