Emma Adaptations Pages Image Gallery!

EmmaFeatured here are all the publicity stills, screencaps, posters, lobby cards, and other image-based materials related to all of the Jane Austen Emma film and television adaptations and various editions of the novel. Productions included are the 1972 BBC adaption starring Doran Godwin (Emma 1), the 1996 Miramax adaptation starring Gwyneth Paltrow (Emma 2), the 1997 ITV/A&E version starring Kate Beckinsale (Emma 3), the 2009/2010 BBC/PBS version starring Romola Garai (Emma 4), the 2020 adaptation starring Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma 5), and the “Bollywood” Emma, Ayesha, from 2010. Eventually, I may also add some Clueless (1995) media.

I’ve also included some illustrations from various editions of the novel, most of which were sent to me by my friend Cinthia:

    • There are illustrations by Charles Edmund Brock (1870-1938) from 1898 and 1909 editions of Emma.
    • The 1898 edition Brock Illustrations are American reproductions of earlier versions presented in an English edition. The watercolor Brock illustrations come from a 1909 edition of the novel published by J.M. Dent & Co. in London and by  E.P. Dutton & Co. in New York.
    • There are also illustrations by Philip Gough from an 1948 edition published by McDonald & Co., illustrations by Fritz Kredel from a 1964 edition from Heritage Press, and black and white “line” drawings by Hugh Thomson from another edition.
