Jessa at Bookslut alerts us to the UK's new Jane Eyre stamps, in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Charlotte's death.
I was thrilled at first, but...uh...erm...well... I'm not quite sure they "lay bare the passion and repression of the book." See for yourself.
The six Jane Eyre stamps went in front of the council of the Brontë Society yesterday and have been welcomed by at least one of their number. 'It is wonderful', said Bob Barnard, chair of the society. 'The paintings are slightly strange, but are unsettling in a way that will promote a lot of new interest in Charlotte's writing.'
At least one of their number or only one of their number?
