guardian know a good photo book when they see it, hence why Soviet Ghosts - our latest literary project - is currently sitting pretty in their gallery section.

Imagine one day you turn on MTV base and you hear a woman with a glorious voice telling you to go back to the drawing board and not give up, at this same moment you had already had a feeling this was what you were going to do, but the timing of this feels you with light .. You wait to the end of the video to find out who it is and see the name ’ Terri Walker ‘.. You scribble this down, think you need to get her album.. Imagine the next day you go to work only to find this lady album on blast in the shop. This Album then becomes your soundtrack for then next two years straight, you listen to nothing else but her and the notorious B.IG . Imagine being introduced to Amy Winehouse’s music and not only falling in love with her voice and wording but also the fact that you can hear Terri Walkers influence all over it so you love Amy even more, because you know for a fact that Amy is also a fan of the woman you are a fan of .. Imagine your mate Marty Party introduces you via Skype to the woman who at this point you’ve been listening to for a decade. At this point you still love the first album as you did the first time you heard it. Imagine you go to New york to meet with D.Dash about your art work because that same woman recommended you and made it happen, having not even met you in person but just off the fact she loved your work. Imagine you become friends with one of your idol and hero. Imagine that the day Amy Whinehouse dies she the one to tell you and give you a hug.. Imagine she chooses you to shoot what is effectually the follow up to that first album, the album that gave you strength and a fresh look at relationships.. Imagine she becomes your homie, imagine that? I am bless to know you Walker. You inspire me .. No words for how much I appreciate and love you. Happy Birthday . cc @blessedbish
#tbt to April 2, 2012 when we launched the inaugural Cityread London with Stellar Libraries. We took over Kings Cross St Pancras at rush hour on a Monday morning (to the bemusement of the general public) to give away 1,000 copies of penguin classics’ Oliver Twist ahead of the month long literature festival. Events included immersive Dickensian story-telling at iconic museums, pop-up Victorian dinner parties and even readings in the late, great Queen Victoria’s bedroom.
This year, Cityread goes from strength to strength, with London Mayor Boris Johnson even supporting! Head to http://www.cityreadlondon.org.uk for more information.
