The Word Made Flesh

    The Word Made Flesh / Eva Talmadge

    The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos from Bookworms Worldwide is a guide to the emerging subculture of literary tattoos--a collection of more than 150 full-color photographs of human epidermis indelibly adorned with quotations and illustrations from Dickinson to Pynchon, from Shakespeare to Plath. With beloved lines of verse, literary portraits, and illustrations--and statements from the bearers on their tattoos' history and the personal significance of the chosen literary work--The Word Made Flesh is part collection of photographs and part literary anthology written on skin.
