I made this using one of C.E. Brock's exquisite illustrations for Jane Austen's Persuasion, specifically the scene "He placed it before Anne" where Captain Wentworth gives Anne Elliot The Letter. *sigh* If you've read the book, you'll know how wonderful it is!! It's such a wonderful ending to a wonderful story.

I've reproduced the letter itself in its entirety, using Pia Frauss' Jane Austen handwriting font, so it would look as much as possible like it would have been originally written. :-)

This matches a similar wallpaper I made for Pride & Prejudice that can be viewed here:

I love this book! Together with "Pride and Prejudice", I've read them both so many times..
This is my favourite moment from the book and it's so beautifully recreated! 
Thank you for this lovely piece of art <3

So gorgeous. I do wish it fit the size of my laptop so I could use it. Maybe I could convince the family to let me use it on the family computer...

What's the size of your laptop? You could try setting it to center with a similarly-colored background...

Mine's bigger than this, so it'll fit. I'm just picky and like things to fit perfectly.

That's what I wanted to know -- if you tell me your screen resolution I'll shrink it for you, if you'd rather do that instead of set your desktop to stretch? :D
