Simply Messing About with Books…


With apologies to Kenneth Graham, …there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about with books. I continue being slow as molasses putting this book together. However, it is an extremely satisfying task, and a wonderful example of the concept that in order to have a good book, one does not need a collection of stunning photographs, but rather a collection of photos that work together and tell a story. I have previously written about my process, so I won’t rehash it here except to say that if you feel the least bit like doing a book but are hesitating, hesitate no more and get going, even if you have not worked out all the details in your head.
