A Thousand Words: When Authors Act as Artists
Melville House had a great post a few days ago about the art of great authors. It was full of beautiful examples – paintings and art by the likes of Goethe, Victor Hugo, Herman Hesse, Aldous Huxley, Jack Kerouac, Kurt Vonnegut, Henry Miller (complete with genitalia, naturally) and more.
It made me think to scour the site and see what gems we might have for sale. Granted, these are largely by authors who also actually WERE artists, but they are beautiful and priceless pieces nevertheless.
And if you’re interested in browsing and gaping (or buying!), there is much more original art by authors and illustrators available on AbeBooks.
