Mug Shots Of Characters From Banned Books

Janie Crawford from Zora Neale Hurston’s “Their Eyes Were Watching God”

We love this post from THP:

University student Kate Boryeskne created a compelling response to censorship with a series of paintings she’s calling “Banned Books Mugshots.” The illustrations feature characters from challenged books such as “The Scarlet Letter” and “Their Eyes Were Watching God.”

Check out more of Kate’s illustrations on her portfolio.
