Jane Austen was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique, and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary, have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars.


Vintage aesthetic and modern flair, together. This robust book strap can easily carry your books and journals, and is sure to turn heads as an accessory piece. Made larger than other models, to accommodate books such as textbooks, or larger, special editions. 

Made from sturdy latigo leather, tanned in America at the Horween tannery in Chicago, Illinois.
