LibrarianM - Review from Kate Spade
NamesThere is an author named Jane G. Austin who wrote many romances in the late 19th century, such as Dora Darling, Cipher, and Nameless Nobleman. But probably not the author the designer had in mind to feature in this print.

Last NamesWhile Jane Austen is more well-known, there's a guy named William Austin. And Majorie Kinnan Rawlings exists too. I don't know if there was some issue of permissions that would be required to use the names or just poor editing. Whatever the case, I'm getting married in a library and will be putting my bridesmaids' gifts in this bag because it's too darn perfect and where else would I find such a random design…well, probably Etsy, but still.

Incorrect spellingsAs someone previously stated on the required reading handheld, Jane Austen is not spelled Jane Austin. I'd like to think that only those of us who truly love to read, would gravitate toward these items, thus making the errors much more irritating. I also believe that if you have been alive for the last 15 years, one would know that the author of the Harry Potter stories is not J.K. Rowlings plural, just simply J.K. Rowling- singular.These are unfortunate errors, because I loved the idea, I just can't bring myself to advertise incorrect information on an overpriced bag.
