Jonkers is a bookstore based in Henley-on-Thames, UK, specializing in the sale of exceptional rare books.
Their team has recently created an infographic that puts together pseudonyms used by famous authors. Each pair of names (real & pen) is accompanied by a short description why an author decided to publish under a pseudonym.
For some, using a pen name is a way to escape the hype and expectations that come with using their own name, while for others writing under their own name wasn’t an option owing to the perceived gender roles or cultural connotations of the time.
