author icons!

Thanks to everyone who took the poll! It looks like the mouse icon wins. :) I may use one of the "I corrupted them all" icons later, too.

I tried to find another way to use Dostoevsky's picture, and this inspired a small set of author icons with handwriting and signatures, like so:

        

First batch:




01. Dickens


04. Wilde


07. Diderot


10. Vonnegut


13. Eliot


15. Gaiman




02. Dostoevsky


05. Joyce

  
08. Nietzsche

  
11. Stoppard


14. Eliot



  
03. Hugo


06. Joyce

  
09. Nietzsche

  
12. Gaiman





ETA: Second batch:




01. Shakespeare


04. Doyle


07. Dumas




02. Byron


05. Pratchett

  
08. Fitzgerald



  
03. Poe


06. Tolkien

  
09. Austen


The text is from...

Dickens: a manuscript of Nicholas Nickleby
Dostoevsky: a letter to his brother
Hugo: a letter addressed to "Madame"
Wilde: a letter to Walt Whitman
Joyce: a manuscript of Ulysses
Diderot: a manuscript of La Religieuse
Nietzsche: a manuscript of Mein Leben
Vonnegut: a typewritten and drawn-all-over letter to Mark Lindquist
Stoppard: a print page of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.
Gaiman: a handwritten page of Neverwhere
Eliot: a handwritten copy of "Virginia"
Shakespeare: a 17th century folio of Henry V
Byron: a manuscript of Don Juan
Poe: a letter to F. W. Thomas and Jesse Dowe
Doyle: a letter to Arthur Wright
Pratchett: a print page of Night Watch
Tolkien: a letter, recipient unknown
Dumas: a letter, recipient's name illegible
Fitzgerald: a letter to Mrs. Northrop
Austen: a letter to her brother

Oh, and then there are these:





EDIT: Fixed it so that the images work again, and added a bunch more.
