What a great book...wonderful photographs, interesting back stories and even my own lovely Bloomington was featured (thanks to a local tattooed bookworm)! I also love that they showcase some E. E. Cummings tattoos as he's one of my most favorite poets. My one complaint is that I wish it was longer. While the editors did represent tattoos from more modern books, really the only ones shown were from the blockbuster Harry Potter series and Twilight series. I would have loved to seen more modern fiction represented besides the aforementioned novels. If you read this book and are also left wanting more, they have a blog that features literary tattoos tattoolit.com. Pretty nifty, eh? All in all, I really enjoyed reading this book and seeing where others found inspiration from reading.
