Guess the Writer (#quiz #infographic) by #bid4papers


Folks who read our blog know that Lesley and I love reading, and that we read a lot. Moreover, we like to draw from time to time, as well as write about books and authors. Today’s post is just about all of that.

The idea behind this appeared quite suddenly. I finished reading Master and Margarita and started exploring Bulgakov’s biography. I wanted to know more about the author as well as find some cool facts about the novel, which I really liked. This is what I found on one of the sites (original illustration by Anton Glotov). I thought it was very stylish. Carefully crafted bits capture the essence and reading atmosphere of the novel. I sent it to a few of my friends and asked them to guess which book was behind the image (not all of them were bookworms, I must admit). Some guessed, while some did not. Others asked if there were any other similar images they could guess literary works from. I suddenly realized that I would happily challenge myself and guess, and guess, and guess again! Several hours of concentrated googling did not yield any results – i couldn’t find anything similar.

“If not me, then who?” I put together a list of authors that had a big impact on me at the time I was reading them. I tried to visualize some of their most influential works in images.
