9780062099495 With the candid quirkiness of Awkward Family Photos and the confessional intimacy of PostSecret, Ransom Riggs's Talking Pictures is a haunting collection of antique found photographsâ€”with evocative inscriptions that bring these lost personal moments to lifeâ€”from the author of the New York Times bestselling illustrated novel Miss Peregrineâ€™s Home for Peculiar Children. Each image in Talking Pictures reveals a singular, frozen moment in a personâ€™s life, be it joyful, quiet, or steeped in sorrow. Yet the bookâ€™s unique depth comes from the writing accompanying each photo: as with the caption revealing how one seemingly random snapshot of a dancing couple captured the first dance of their 40-year marriage, each successive inscription shines like a flashbulb illuminating a photographâ€™s particular context and lighting up our connection to the past.
