Alice Hawkins, a photographer and filmmaker, produced a most unusual art book, Alice’s Adventures, presenting a large number of her photographs. They are a strange mixture, featuring large full-page photos, even occasional double-spreads. All photos are of people taken during Hawkins’ travels in her home base in Great Britain, then Cuba, Hawaii, India, Italy, the USA, Jamaica, Kenya, and Russia. Her large photos are not candid shots but all carefully and artistically posed, varying greatly in locale. Some are headshots, but most are full-figure; many are of a single person, others are of two or more people. Interspersed with Hawkins’ beautiful photos are a huge number of snapshots from her travels and her life, some with brief hand-scripted captions. In some cases, she crammed some twenty tiny photos on a single page. These snapshots are pure, unnecessary fillers not many readers would find interesting enough to view. At the end of the book a list of brief captions of photos is given and readers would need to refer to these for explanations of the photos. Alas, the book designers goofed: many page numbers are missing and readers must leaf from an existing one to find a specific photo’s page number—a great inconvenience.
