BOOKS: Book making and the potential of the book began in 1990. My first year of the BA(Hons) Photographic Studies course at Derby opened up so many possibilities for the photograph, however the book – perhaps as having been a graphic designer and enjoying typography – meant both appreciating a fascinating history and a personal way forward with the form. Although the single image can fascinate and delight, the idea of making connections between unrelated events, times and text, is the potential of the book’s pleasure. All books are handmade with the one exception of The Sparkling Air, which was produced online with Blurb.
