Want to Read Jane Austen in Miniature?

I kept close tabs on the release and reviews of flipback books when they were launched by Hodder & Stoughton this past June. Since then, a few new exciting developments have occurred.

First, and perhaps most interestingly for those of us in America, Jane Austen’s novels are now available in flipback, and they can be purchased through Amazon.com partners. If you’re in America and want to get your hands on a flipback, this is a great opportunity to check one out without prohibitive shipping and handling costs. It seems the Austen flipback books are published by John Murray, an imprint of Hodder.

In other flipback news, Hodder & Stoughton has added six new titles to its 18-title flipback catalog. The new books include:

  • “Mister Pip” by Lloyd Jones
  • “The Bone Collector” by Jeffery Deaver
  • “Brethren” by Robyn Young
  • “Little Face” by Sophie Hannah
  • “What I Loved” by Siri Hustvelt
  • “Bad Men” by John Connolly

  1. Thanks so much for these links, Laura. I will not only keep them for myself, I’ll pass them to one of my on-line groups 🙂

    • Oh excellent, Florence! Thank you for passing them along. I’ve done a series of these posts, including an interview with the international marketing manager of Jongbloed, the Bible-publishing company that created the flipback/dwarsligger format. You can read the older pieces by clicking on the flipback category in my blog sidebar. And I think it’s time to give away another flipback soon! So stay tuned…

  2. So VERY cool, Laura. Thanks for these links. I’ll be checking them out. I love Jane Austen, and I can’t wait to get my hands on one of those flipbacks!

    • You’re welcome, Christi! I’ve thought about ordering a Jane Austen one just for the pleasure of having such a pretty and unusual volume on my bookshelf. The covers are lovely. I haven’t (yet) because I’m not sure which novel to buy!
