Though it's been centuries since Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice was first published, the book still attracts a sizable audience with each new generation. And if you find yourself enraptured by the Regency-era romance, you can quite literally carry your passion for Pemberley around with you, thanks to this Pride and Prejudice clutch bag ($78) from the My Modern Met Store.

Designed with the elegance of a first-edition book cover, this Pride and Prejudice book clutch from BAGatelle Studio is made from vegan leather and is fully lined. The purse features a pocket with a zipper to hold your belongings (roomy enough to hold a book, of course), and removable straps, making it easier to switch between slinging it over your shoulder or carrying it around by hand.

Elena Myloslavskaya started BAGatelle Studio when she couldn’t find a bag on the market that truly spoke to her, so she decided to make her own. Now she produces fun “book bags” that feature some of literature’s most beloved titles. In addition to the Pride and Prejudice book clutch, they also have bags designed after Truman Capote’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Edgar Allan Poe’s "The Raven," and Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden.
