Biographical or historical data
  • Jane Austen, the seventh child of the local rector, was born in 1775 at Steventon, Hampshire. In 1801 she moved with her parents to Bath but returned to Hampshire when her father died, settling in the village of Chawton. She remained there until 1817, when she moved to Winchester to be within easy reach of her doctor. She died that year, at age forty-one, and is buried in Winchester Cathedral, which also contains a plaque in honor of her memory. Four of her novels were published anonymously in her lifetime, two more, one of which was Persuasion, appeared posthumously.
  • Alice Pattullo is an illustrator and printmaker based in East London. She graduated in 2010 with a First Class Honours in Illustration from Brighton University. She works predominantly in screen print producing limited edition prints for sale in various outlets across the UK and online. Research is at the heart of her practice and her work is often inspired by British folk tradition and superstition.
