The Word Made Flesh
The Word Made Flesh: Literary Tattoos from Bookworms Worldwide is Eva Talmadge and Justin Taylor’s love letter to literary tattoos. Featuring a collection of over 150 color photographs and personal essays, the book focuses on the thrall of words and the power they can have over us–the way certain words strike a chord so resonant that some are willing to make them a permanent part of themselves.
The book has a Tumblr where you can check out tons of literary tattoos, like this one:
