Found in the New Yorker

First, I loved this cover. I might have to frame this. I like the idea of climbing up to the clouds and over the obstacles of life up a staircase of books. I also like the imagery of the man as an adventurer, on safari among the stories, with the next step uncertain. I imagine that the stack will keep appearing to support his ascent.



But then I opened the magazine and this image grabbed my attention. It is part of a Ralph Lauren ad. I could not take my eyes off of it. This, you see, is precisely how I picture Edward. The smooth white skin, the detached air, the perfection, the formality. Sara thinks I'm way off, mostly because of the hair, but I really don't picture him with bronze hair. So, I'm curious to see how others picture Edward. Is there an actor or a face that you see when you read the books?

  1. I can totally see the Edward on this guy's skin! I do always picture a more rugged, square jaw but maybe that's just me. The tux on this guy is so what I envision Edward wearing at his wedding!

  3. Oh, I love my Edward. I do love the jaw, but I need longer hair for my fantasy Edward. This will be fun to post pictures we find of our dream Edward!

  4. I have to side with Sara on this one...this person is beautiful enough, but I really think the hair needs to be bronzy...I have as yet not been able to find my edward.

  6. But the hair CUT is totally right. It looks like his time period. I don't think you're way off!
