Description: 8 1/2 x 11-inch special issue; creative nonfiction essay with 5 b/w photographs, 3 color photographs, bibliography. Excerpt: Begin with books that have only words. Add photographs slowly, at first just for documentation. You get histories with pictures of people and places, biographies with snapshots from family albums, and textbooks with illustrations. Keep adding photographs until they share the lead with words. The stage is set. Add imagination and the curtain will rise on Photo and Word. Or, begin with books that have only photographs. . . . (5)
