The book cover of Pictures/Texts (1995).

Pictures/Texts, a collection of essays, was published by Hung Fan Books.

This book has a collage on the cover made by Xi Xi herself. The original photo, a picture of Xi Xi reading, was overlaid with images of many of Xi Xi’s favorite things, including some of her feline friends.

Xi Xi has filled her book with pictures of authors.

Can you identify any of the authors Xi Xi has included here?
