The Faces of Fantasy: Intimate Photos of Over 100 Top Fantasy Authors based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
I've spent a lot of time enjoying the photographs of various popular fantasy writers in this book, and always, in the back of my mind, is thd question, "How on earth did one photographer get so many quirky geniuses to agree to sit for her pictures?" I guess it's because Patti Perret is a genius herself with the camera. The book is set up so that each author has a page, with the facing page on the right being his/her photograph. The left side bears the author's name, some words by him and, at the very bottom, his most popular book(s). Some authors write just a sentence or two. Others use up their whole page. But what they say always gives a tantalizing glimpse into what makes their writing great. They are quite a group, these fantasy authors!
This is a fascinating book. I loved how Ms. Perret asked each of the authors to comment on their craft. I enjoyed being able to pair a face with a body of work, too.
