Large Photo of Lewis

Large Photo of Lewis

Postby AdamL » 18 Aug 2004, 00:28

Hi there,

I'm looking for a large (resolution-wise) jpg or what-not of C.S. Lewis, particularly the one of him smiling in his chair as printed on the back of the books.

If anyone knows where I can find that particular photograph, or can send me a copy, I would really appreciate it.

Heya Adam L .. gosh this is confusing. We already HAVE an Adam L ;)

Have you tried the pics on the side of the menu bar? I am not sure if there is the one you're looking for, but it's worth a shot.

Do you mean this one?

Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.

Are you sure that's not Tony Soprano?

Soprano? No, I would think he's a bass.... since he was the origin of the character of Treebeard in LOTR... "Barooom! Hoom hoom!"

Two AdamL's? The world just got a lot crazier. :o)

That's not the photo, but thanks for the attempt. The one I had in mind is the same one usually featured on the back of his softcover books.

He's got a big open mouthed smile on his face. It's not in the photo archive on this website and I can't seem to find it elsewhere either.

Have you tried a search on google? A search there led me to this web page: RAZ402.HTM

where I found this:


which looks like the kind of picture you were after.

Heh, I spent the better part of an hour on google and never once came across it.

This one does look similar to the one though, I think it will do! Is there a larger version?

I intend to have it printed and framed.

Does anyone know how tall C S Lewis was? This photo seems to suggest he was perhaps a person of small stature though for some reason I always thought he was rather tall, don't ask me why though.
