So you want to write like Jane? While we can’t help you with the sharpening of your wit, we can recommend a typeface that’ll at least get you writing like your favorite author, at least on the surface.

The Jane Austen typeface, designed by Pia Frauss, is available for free (for personal use) at https://www.dafont.com/jane-austen.font or on Frauss’ website.
