5 Criminal Mugshots of Characters From Banned Books

To celebrate Banned Books Week, Tumblr user Jubliant Antics! created some thought-provoking mugshots of beloved literary characters:

Holden Caulfield, The Catcher in the Rye

Banned for: Strong language, sexual references, and for encouraging rebellion.

Hester Prynne, The Scarlet Letter

Banned for: The book has been called “pornographic and obscene,” yet there is no sex in the book. Really it’s banned because of the plot: Hester’s adulterous affair with Arthur Dimmesdale and the resulting pregnancy.
