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.

Neil Gaiman as Badger, The Wind in the Willows

Francesca Simon as the Queen of Hearts and Stephen Butler as the Mad Hatter, Alice in Wonderland

Michael Morpurgo as Magwitch, Great Expectations

Malorie Blackman as the Wicked Witch of the West, The Wizard of Oz

Anthony Horowitz as Jekyll and Hyde

Holly Smale as the White Witch, The Chronicles of Narnia

Benjamin Zephaniah as Anansi the Spider

Terry Jones as Rupert the Bear

Terry Pratchett as Just William

The exhibit runs at the Story Museum in Oxford through November 2nd.

Via Nerdist.

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!
