Margaret Atwood illustrates In Other Worlds e-book

Nan A. Talese, an imprint of Doubleday U.S., is previewing illustrations from the e-book version of Margaret Atwood’s essay collection In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination (McClelland & Stewart).

What’s most notable about these drawings, which demonstrate a variety of cartoonish styles, is that Atwood is the artist. The preview also includes a drawing of a superhero character named Blue Bunny the author did as a child.

Last year, Atwood surprised two fans by drawing superhero versions of their Twitter aliases, Kidney Boy and Dr. Snit.
