Cassandra Clare Poses For A Lauren Zurchin Studios Calendar: Beyond Words, 2014 Fantasy Calendar

Photographer Lauren Zurchin recently contacted me and told me about her upcoming 2014 Fantasy Calendar (which you can pre-order here for $20), that features Cassandra Clare (see above), and other favorite YA authors like Maggie Stiefvater, Holly Black, Lauren Oliver, Lauren Kate, and more. It's not only cool that we get to see some of our favorite author dressed in killer costumes that Lauren herself made, but ALL the proceeds from the calendar sales go to First Book and Worldbuilders.

Of Cassie's photo shoot, Lauren had this to say:

The initial idea for the look of the photo was to shoot it in the height of autumn, which would have been great, as Cassie lives in New England. But Cassie is in Europe for all of fall, and though we considered me flying over there to shoot it, timing wouldn’t allow. So we worked with what we had, which was literally two days between Cassie getting back from the City of Bones movie premiere and heading overseas. She squeezed me in, and we made it work! I actually think the look of the photo really captures what I wanted, almost better than if everything had been orange or red or yellow. I’m really happy with the result, and so glad Cassie was a part of this project. She even forgave me for burning her a little bit with the metal (those hand flowers get really really hot!), because she’s just that awesome.
