The Authorial Look

Thanks to ArtDaily I found a link to a display of authors' portraits at Princeton. They're charming and intriguing. I really didn't think Charles Dickens looked as he looks. Strange how fascinating I find these portraits since I generally cringe at the author photos publishers force onto the back page. Maybe it's the charm of yesteryear, or the fact that these portraits are more art than studio shots?
