What’s better than a bunch of literary figures? A bunch of literary figures dressed up as a DIFFERENT bunch of literary figures. A photographer named Cambridge Jones (was there ever a more English name is the history of everything?) did a shoot for The Story Museum in Oxford in which famous authors dressed up as their favorite childhood literary characters. The results are pretty fantastic.

If we’re talking important literary figures, Vivian Kane would have dressed as Stacey from The Babysitter’s Club and she doesn’t care what you think!
