Authors Bringing Their Favorite Characters To Life

As reported by the BBC, Photographer Cambridge Jones in league with 26 distinguished authors have brought to life their favorite childhood characters for The Story Museum in England.

With the help of costumes from the Royal Shakespeare Company and National Theatre, the resulting exhibit features 26 writers portraying a collection of rogues, rascals, witches and wild things.

Each one features in their own character-themed interactive space, accompanied with audio of the authors reading extracts from their books and interviewed about their chosen character.

Many of us sadly cannot make the trip across the great and wonderful pond – The Atlantic so BBC has been able to kindly publish some of the photos for us to see. Check out Neil Gaiman playing The Badger from The Wind in the Willows.
