I've been making book length portraits of friends and colleagues by inserting them into books and having them printed in editions of two. I call this series Novel Protagonists. Mostly these are classic novels with the main characters replaced, but this has taken other forms as well.
Winston Smith of 1984 become Eric Steen, a friend I met at PSU. The title became 1985. Eric was interested in utopia and sci-fi when I created this book for him.
