I like to think that it is because I am a visual person - whatever that means - that when I pick up a book I immediately gloss through all its pages in search of the images hidden within. However, observing most people paging through not only the heavyweight reading material sold in those intellectual-looking bookstores, but also popular magazines and newspapers, I am obliged to admit that there is nothing unique or intelligent about my interest in the visual. Undoubtedly, often, but not always, it is precisely their images that draw us into books of all kinds, inviting our casual glance to become more directed to the narratives surrounding them.
