it was amazing
Read from February 02 to 09, 2011

I had to read this for Dr. Poe's (the author of the book) class on C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the Inklings. Both the writer and photographer teach at my college and I know (and am close friends with) most of the other photographers as well. Thought I would get my bias out of the way first.

I thought this was a magnificent introduction to the Inklings. Not too scholarly, and perfect if you know nothing about this influential literary club. The photos are beautiful (and didn't help with my overwhelming desire to study at Oxford one day) and the writing is clear and concise. It's a great coffee table book that serves as an enjoyable intro to big names in literary and Christian circles. Highly recommended.
