Do you have a tattoo? Tweety Bird? A Mermaid? A heart with an anchor going through it with the word “Mom” on top? Well, two young writers noticed a different kind of phenomenon–they noticed lots of people are getting literary tattoos: quotes or illustrations from all kinds of books, as you can see in the book trailer above. The results of their investigation will be published as The Word Made Flesh, a beautiful illustrated book from Harper Perennial next month.
This blogger is thinking of getting a literary tattoo, actually, that says “Renowned curator Jacques Sauniere staggered through the vaulted archway of the museum’s Grand Gallery.” That’ll look awesome.
