Fast Cars & Ukuleles

A is for Apple. B is for Bike. C is for Cat. All three of these are in my new ABC book, ‘Fast Cars & Ukuleles’, but not where you’d expect them. The apple is under F. For the bike, look at V. And the cat is on an endpaper. I’ve always loved alphabet books. Continue reading “Fast Cars & Ukuleles”

John Taylor’s Month Away

I’ve been collecting wee clips of the sea on my phone over the last few years. I wasn’t sure why, but making a wee film with them all together, with King Creosote’s song seems to be just right. Locations include…Royal Victoria Country Park, Southampton, the train to and from Plymouth, the Tay Bridge, a beach in France, the Isle of Wight ferry, and of course the view from the mighty Forth Rail Bridge.
