Whitman and Twain-quoted in color

Recently, famous photographs in black and white have been colorized using computer technology.  Now some of our favorite historical figures can be seen in “true color” for the first time.  In honor of that, I decided to create color posters of two of my favorite writers, quotes included.  They now cover my desk, covering up the hole where a previous teacher or student must have kicked the desk in anger.

Twain looks about like you’d expect him to.  Whitman looks like a cross between Tom Bombadil and Santa Clause.
