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
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.
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!
