Emily Dickinson knitting while kayaking through a lavafall

Emily Dickinson playing cards with dogs

Emily Dickinson in a factory, with Ezra Pound on a leash

Emily Dickinson as an astronaut baseball-player in a bathroom

Emily Dickinson as Catwoman in Boston Commons

Emily Dickinson riding on a hunting dog at sunset

Emily Dickinson as a centaur in the ocean

Emily Dickinson as a mermaid
