Pride and Prejudice-inspired bookends from two stray cats

Two Stray Cats is a store over at Etsy. They've come up with these beautiful bookends or what they call "shelf pillows" inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
Hello, can anyone guess who said the above? Hint: It's a marriage proposal!
And there are more cool Pride and Prejudice-inspired bookends after the jump!

I love these vintage illustrations of Jane and Bingley.

... I like these a little more, because it's of Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.  

And if like a bit of action leading up to the first set of bookends, you can get these too! (You know this is Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy, again, right?)
Well, why not the whole of Chapter One of Pride and Prejudice?

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife" (Jane Austen)
