Jane Austen gets her own British banknote


Make way for Lady Jane, Chuck!

The new £10 note will feature a portrait of Jane Austen as well as select scenes and a quote from her novels, an incredible way to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice‘s publication and a great honor for a beloved British author.

She’s only the third non-royal woman to be featured on the currency, or what we’ll call a slow but steady evolution in the right direction.

Full story at YouTube via The Mary Sue.

Great writers get their due.
