Brian Joseph Davis has used law enforcement ‘photo-fit’ software to create composite sketches from descriptions of literary characters. ‘I started with my bookshelf, which seemed the obvious place’, Davis says. ‘Then I had to find writers who described their characters enough, which required either knowing books’ contents really, really well.’ Or scanning them and looking for keywords (‘eye’, ‘ear’, ‘hair’). The result is a mighty strange combination of literary criticism and forensics. If you can think of a well-described classic character he should consider doing next, email him. He is open to suggestions.
