Ever heard that saying that pet owners look like their pets? Well, lately I’ve been noticing something fun in the world of publishing... authors who look like their books!
Not sure what I mean? Check these out.
Throne of Glass (left) and its author Sarah J Maas (right)
Glamour in Glass (left) and its author Mary Robinette Kowal (right)
Artificial Evil (left) and its author Colin F Barnes (right)
Remembrance (left), Timeless (centre), and their author Michelle Madow.
Okay, this one is a bit more of a push, but imagine her with curled hair and a mask.
Good Omens (left) and its authors Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman (right).
This one is a little different, as the authors don't look exactly like the characters as pictured on the cover. However, the photo is deliberately taken to resemble the two main characters in the story, the demon Crowley (Neil Gaiman), and the angel Aziraphale (Terry Pratchett). It's one of my favourite author photos.
So, have you noticed any authors who look like their covers, or who resemble characters in their books? Got any author-booky-look-a-likes to add to my list? :-)
