Mountains of books

Window display in Shoreditch, London, 2020

And here’s a gallery of piles of books from some recent travels. You can click to view a larger image, and I’ve added links to the bookshop featured where I can.

  1. I love this. My best stack of books memory comes from wonderful Olympic London in 2012 ( what a difference a decade makes…) when there were wonderful sinuous stacks of books snaking round the Festival Hall. I guess you saw that too?

  2. I’m in awe of your ‘tagging’ system as well as your talent for photography. I am one of those people who make plans to ‘tag’ their pictures and do wonderful things that would make them more accessible – but I never do it. I think it’s a product of my days as a travel journalist when I took photos to go with the commission I was working on and gave little thought to the others that I took as back-ups. Then one day my computer, and back-up drive which was attached, both got corrupted and I lost pictures and texts: on recovery, the captions and the order in which they were taken was all over the place. If I’d had them all captioned and tagged it wouldn’t have made a difference as these disappeared, so I had to throw out a lot of churches, landscapes, seascapes etc. as I didn’t know one from another. Since then I’ve made two back-ups, on on DVD, but I should really get round to tagging them. Lock-down should give me that push – but I’m lazy.
    Meantime, I love you book shots.
