Wonderful gifts for writers or readers.
Persuasion was Jane Austen’s last novel that she finished before she died. Featuring all of Austen’s wit and wisdom, these pencils are a beautiful gift for your best friend, your sister or anyone with a love of Austen’s work.
The pencil box design reflects the nautical themes in the novel, the navy and the sea.
Each step of the process from design to finish is handmade in my studio in Co. Kildare, Ireland. A truly Irish gift for the bookworm in your house.
You can choose to have your Persuasion pencil set gift wrapped in a specially designed wrapping paper, which features the text from Captain Wentworth’s famous letter to Anne Elliot at the novels end.
The Persuasion quotes used for your pencil set are:
She had been forced into prudence in her youth, she learned romance as she grew older: the natural sequel to an unnatural beginning Chapter 4
I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth waters all our days
– Mrs. Croft, Chapter 8
There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in union, no countenances so beloved. Now they were as strangers; nay, worse than strangers, for they could never become acquainted. It was a perpetual estrangement. Chapter 8
All the privilege I claim for my own sex (it is not a very enviable one; you need not covet it ), is that of loving longest, when existence or when hope is gone. Chapter 23
I can listen no longer in silence. I must speak to you by such means as are within my reach. You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. – Captain Wentworth, Chapter 23
