The Magic of Thinking Big- David Schwartz Audiobook
Design-wise, the most famous collaboration between a writer and a photographer did not end up looking like much of a collaboration at all. When it comes to the relationship between a critic or curator writing about photographers or photography, the results span the spectrum of exclusion, segregation and integration. At all points in between, the word-image ratio shifts constantly between the writing informing the pictures and the pictures illustrating the writing. But there is one form — the simplest in many ways — that permits and encourages a uniquely intimate relationship between writer and photographer. With Szarkowski as the best kind of guide — one whose itinerary allows interludes of undisturbed contemplation — we wind our way through the haunts of old Paris, emerging from time-shuttered streets into the open skies of the surrounding countryside. Szarkowski had always been a distinctive stylist, but this format enabled him to give free rein to his talents as a writer, which were usually securely tethered by curatorial obligation. There is something so harmonious about this many-leveled marriage — of self-contained essay with self-contained image, of art book with literary text — that I am surprised by the relative paucity of other examples.

I invited him to come to my table, which he did.
We talk so much about books being portals, or magical, or losing yourself in a book, that I wanted to write something where that was literally true. In a more day-to-day sense, the book is set in my idea of a perfect bookshop - pulled together from all my favourite bookshops, real life and fictional - which is run by Archie and Elsie Pages, who live there with their granddaughter, Tilly. BB Clearly you could not have written this story without still being in love with children's books. But can deep knowledge of books be daunting as well as inspiring when it comes to writing your own? AJ Definitely! I pull from several children's classics and I absolutely had some moments where I felt like I just wasn't going to get away with it. Writing in the voices of beloved characters was a little bit terrifying, but once I started I realised that these are characters that are part of me, that I know so well, and it ended up being a joy once I got over that initial terror.
