Jane Austen wrote of her nephew James Edward Austen-Leigh: We were happy to see Edward, it was an unexpected pleasure, and he makes himself as agreeable as ever, sitting in such a quiet comfortable way making his delightful sketches.” Edward brought the fine art of silhouettes to perfection, creating evocative images of landscapes and the creatures that lived in them. This appealing diary lets readers organize their thoughts and express their own artistry with the inspiration of Austen and her artist nephew.

Jane Austen (1775 - 1817) was a major English novelist, whose brilliantly witty, elegantly structured satirical fiction marks the transition in English literature from 18th century neo-classicism to 19th century romanticism. Born in the village of Steventon, near Basingstoke, in Hampshire. The seventh of eight children, she was the daughter of a clergyman and part of a close-knit family. In 1801 the family moved to Bath until the death of her father. Then, after a period of impermanent homes, in July 1809 the Austen ladies moved to Chawton Cottage, Hampshire, where Jane was to complete most of her major works before her early death. A descendent of Jane Austen, Freydis Welland owns the collection of silhouettes by James Edward Austen-Leigha and put together the images and the quotes for In the Country, published in 2008 by the British Library, Life in the Country, The British Library Jane Austen Desk and Pocket Diaries 2010, and The British Library Jane Austen Journal. Freydis lives in Vancouver, Canada
