The Composites

Literary characters captured in police sketches.

Ever wonder what Tess from Thomas Hardy’s Tess of the d’Urbervilles would look like in real life? Or how about Aomame from Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84? Created by former Torontonian Brian Joseph Davis, The Composites features police composite sketches of literary characters alongside the descriptive paragraphs that inspired them. It’s creepy, but that’s what we like about it.
