Great Lives in Graphics: Jane Austen is a brand new infographic biography of one of the most famous writers in the world. In an engaging graphic style, this book explains to children aged 8 to 12 the world into which Jane was born. It details the Regency era in which she lived in which class was everything and a women’s freedom was severely limited.

It provides a historical account of the period in British history in which she lived and how she broke conventions by being not only a very literate woman but also a published author (albeit under the humorous pseudonym ‘A Lady; – to keep her reputation intact of course!).

This book tells readers how through Jane’s novels, with their realistic characters, romantic plot lines and dashing heroes, she proved to be a master not only at revealing what people were really thinking behind their polite smiles but also at subtly questioning and examining Regency traditions, the slave trade, social inequality and women’s place in society.
