With a stunning cover design inspired by the iconic fashion featured in the book, this beautiful hardback edition is a special 'Puffin Classic' created in partnership with the world-famous V & A Museum. It features an exclusive foreword by Connie Karol Burks, an Assistant Curator in the Fashion, Textiles and Furniture Department at the V&A. Emma is clever, rich, beautiful and sees no need for marriage. An irrepressible matchmaker, she loves interfering in the romantic lives of others, until her matchmaking plans unravel, with consequences that she never expected. Jane Austen's novel of youthful exuberance, with its imperfect but charming heroine, is often seen as her most flawless work.
