Not sure what forum this belongs in: http://imprint.printmag.com/steven-brower/the-visual-art-and-design-of-famous-writers/

I don't mind Plath's self-portrait, or Baudelaire's. Burroughs' collage is great. Kipling's pieces are quite striking. And I like Shaw's comic piece. Otherwise, not impressed!

Great link. The Burrough's shot-gun paintings gave me a smile. I liked the Cumming's illustration, defined the time.

Thanks. Most were unknown to me. D.H. Lwarence took his painting seriously.

Fascinating. Love Poe's self portrait and Kipling's whale.
