The Writing’s On The Wall: Pride and Prejudice

The Writing’s On The Wall is a regular feature on Pop! Goes The Reader in which I create desktop wallpapers inspired by some of my favourite novels.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that an ardent Pride and Prejudice fan must be in want of an appropriate desktop wallpaper. When I first came up with the idea for The Writing’s On The Wall, there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to pay homage to what is not only one of my favourite romances of all time, but one of my favourite novels as well. While I have no doubt that I’ll be revisiting this novel again in the future (and again and again and again) I wanted to begin with something relatively simple that captured both the feeling of the novel as well as the relationship between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. As was the case with the Jane Eyre wallpaper before it, I wanted to pursue a slightly more modern, playful, hip style, while still maintaining the spirit of the story by using the more traditional silhouettes. I can only hope I managed to do this with some measure of success.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”

So begins Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen’s witty comedy of manners – one of the most popular novels of all time – that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues.

I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to Reani Designs, Graphic Market and Rustic Digital Paper whose clipart I purchased, edited and used in the creation of this wallpaper!
