book·ish : Sokol's Word Portraits

John Sokol's Word Portraits are an astonishing blend of art and the written word. From specific passages of literature, Sokol creates portraits of the author in their own words, like the one below of Flannery O'Connor, which rendered my speechless when I found it on Pinterest.


1. (of a person or way of life) Devoted to reading and studying rather than worldly interests.
2. (of language or writing) Literary in style or allusion.
3. (of art and all manner of lovely things) devoted to the written word as a form of art and as a way of seeing the world.
4. (of SheWritesandRights.blogspot.com) anything of the aforementioned characteristics as they are found on the interwebs and reposted by Bethany, because bookish and writerly things always give reason for amusement.

wow! I've never seen a word portrait before. That is really really clever and probably really hard to do!
