Jane Austen Miniprints!

Here are the three miniprints available through the Jane Austen coloring book Kickstarter --the second and third ones will be included free with every physical copy of the book !

In other news, my Jane Austen coloring book Kickstarter is over 340% funded--WOW! We've reached a couple of stretch goals, so now all coloring books will come with two mini art prints! I'll post those up on the blog soon, or hop over to the Kickstarter campaign's update page for a preview! Mr. Collins thinks Lady Catherine would want you to pledge and get your own copy to color: Share ,  Tweet  or  Pin  this image!
