Books are almost as important to me as music. They've been a constant source of inspiration since I was a child. 9 times out of 10, if I'm buying a gift for someone it'll be a book (or a CD).
Here's a quick shot of me being propped up by a small selection of some of my favourites - old and new - inspired by this shot from Nerboo(Brad). The pile was bigger to begin with, but I couldn't get my big head in shot! Some variety, some controversy, all exceptional.
Other books that were on the original pile... 'Miss Smilla's Feeling For Snow' by Peter Hoeg, 'A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius' by Dave Eggers, 'South From Granada' by Gerald Brenan, and 'And The Ass Saw The Angel' by Nick Cave.
