Booklicious: Smile Styles of the Literary and Famous

September 20, 2010


The Rare Book & Manuscript Library of the University of Pennsylvania is in the process of digitizing and uploading more than 2,000 photos of writers that appeared in the American Poetry Review between 1971 and 1998. It's a pretty incredible project, and it's actually fun to click through the writers listed and browse their pictures. Some are the usual headshots, others are fun candids that you may not have seen before.

[Charles Bukowski]
