Google honored the British novelist Jane Austen today with an illustrated logo on the splash page for its UK site. Austen, born 235 years go today on Dec. 16, wrote predominately about class and women in society, and has recently been met with a resurgence of young fandom online. Her books include "Sense and Sensibility," "Pride and Prejudice," "Mansfield Park" and "Emma." The illustration by Google features a couple decked in early-19th Century costume.
