Anti-heroine Becky Sharp gets a refreshing new focus in British artist Donald Urquhart’s new edition of Vanity Fair, the sixth book in our Familiars series. William Makepeace Thackeray's classic novel follows the fortunes of strong-minded and strong-willed Becky Sharp through early 19th century British society.

Urquhart's drawings, inspired by the fashions and iconography of 1930s Hollywood, focus exclusively on Becky Sharp. “I wanted to sideline all the secondary characters,” says Urquhart. The novel is newly typeset in Perpetua and Felicity (partly chosen for their feminine names), typefaces designed by Eric Gill.
