Eva Talmadge and Justin Taylor discuss their book on literary tattoos.
About the book:
“The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos from Bookworms Worldwide is a guide to the emerging subculture of literary tattoos â€” a collection of 100 full-color photographs of human skin indelibly adorned with quotations and images from Pynchon to Dickinson to Shakespeare to Plath. Packed with beloved lines of verse, literary portraits, and illustrations â€” and statements from the bearers on their tattoosâ€™ history and the personal significance of the chosen literary work â€” The Word Made Flesh is part photo collection, part literary anthology written on skin.”
