Blow-Up Dahl


Magazine editors are always scraping the barrel for photoset ideas, but we’d prefer it if they stayed away from universally beloved figures of children’s literature. There are a lot of different reasons to dress a man up in a straw hat and a hideous plaid suit. Leave Roald Dahl alone!

We wish we could say something to explain it all, but there are simply no words.
