Talk About Trends in Book Covers…

My brother sent me a link to a Slate article about stock photography, which ended with a reference to Jennifer Anderson, the “Everywhere Girl,” who shows up on a lot of book covers. Sometimes she walks towards the camera, sometimes she walks away from the camera, sometimes she sits in a classroom, lost in thought…

“I talked to the wardrobe/makeup woman for the shoot on the phone, and she said to bring lots and lots of clothes,” Anderson says in a blog post about the photo shoot, which took place on the campus of Reed College. “Keep in mind that this shoot was done a while ago, so laugh all you want at the outfits, but it was cool back then, I swear!”
