Val McDermid re-imagines Northanger Abbey

Category: News

We’re very excited that the next book in the Austen Project is Northanger Abbey, re-imagined by Val McDermid! The fantastic cover, revealed earlier today by the Bookseller was designed by Jon Gray, who also designed the Sense & Sensibility cover. Jon said:

“The book is a re-telling of the Austen classic and we wanted a cover that said just that. You have the classic silhouette of the house along with some contemporary new additions—the security camera, the satellite dish.”

McDermid’s Northanger Abbey, which publishes next March, opens with heroine Catherine at the Edinburgh Book Festival before the action moves to a gothic mansion in the Scottish borders.

We’d love to hear what you think of the new cover!
