Famous faces?

A Tumblr site recently featured on BBC News shows readers a close-as-you-can-get visual of a book's characters. The Composites takes authors' descriptions of their characters, and tries to create their faces using police e-fit software.

It looks a little bit sinister, due to the connotations e-fit photos have in our history; innocent characters end up looking guilty and pitiful... but I do like this this idea. It's much better than imprinting a famous actress's face onto my reading via Hollywood screen adaptations.

Here are two of my favourites from the Tumblr page - be sure to go and take a look at the rest of the collection! I hope the creator will keep doing them.
