The author of Art History Paper Dolls and the creator of dozens of pop culture paper dolls from television shows, Kyle Hilton here turns his clever pen to paper doll portraits of 16 (or is it 18?) great literary figures. His tributes to Shakespeare, Austen, Poe, Dickens, all three Brontë sisters together, and 11 authors from the 20th century are playful, witty, and surprisingly well researched. Various accessory pieces might represent the particular typewriters they used or the alcohol they preferred, tiny first editions, or even their muses and stalwarts—F. Scott Fitzgerald, for example, is accompanied by Zelda, while Truman Capote is paired with Harper Lee.
