Summary "In an original relationship between language and image, I Spy weaves together photographs made by children, potent images of children, poetry, personal, history and contemporary analysis. The words do not describe the pictures, the pictures do not illustrate the words - the two are brought together into a diverse collection of approaches to the represention of childhood."--BOOK JACKET.
