Gorgeous Illustrations Of Famous Writers' Lives

Posted: Updated:

Most Hemingway fans know of his reverence for bullfighters, and affinity for spiced rum. But did you also know that his beloved pet cats had opposable thumbs?

These and other fun author tidbits (Tolstoy learned to ride a bike at age 67!) are illustrated in Artists, Writers, Thinkers, Dreamers: Portraits of 50 Famous Folks & All Their Weird Stuff [Chronicle Books, $19.95]. Take a look:

  • Ernest Hemingway
  • Leo Tolstoy
  • Oscar Wilde
