It’s the last day of the month, which means it’s time for the latest in my Adventures in Reading series of essays. This time, in “A book holds many stories” I explore how books as physical objects hold stories beyond the printed word. I mix words and photographs, taking inspiration from Chirodeep Chaudhuri and Jerry Pinto, with Caroline Bergvall and SR Ranganathan as other useful waypoints. This photo essay has been a fun and poignant opportunity to revisit the community of my own book shelves, as libraries remain closed and under threat around the world, and as social distancing continues.
You can see the photo essay here. You can read my previous Adventures in Reading, and sign up for future Adventures, too.
