Write Like Jane Austen

640px-Jane_Austen_coloured_versionWhile this blog is about maintaining non-electronic communications in a snail mail-bereft world, that doesn’t mean technology can’t add a little sparkle to the process.

Introducing the Jane Austen font!

I haven’t tried downloading this myself, but what a seductive prospect, to be able to type messages in Jane’s elegant hand — and perhaps channel a modicum of her wit?

Even a dearth of news was no deterrent to Jane when it came to correspondence, as this line from an 1801 letter to her sister Cassandra illustrates:

Expect a most agreeable letter, for not being overburdened with subject (having nothing at all to say), I shall have no check to my genius from beginning to end.”
