My best-selling books here have been Kindle Singles, mostly on maritime subjects: The Mayflower, Darwin and the Beagle, Columbus, Sir Francis Drake... I have also written or edited about 30 other books, notably a biography of the year 1922 (Constellation of Genius), a study of paratexts (Invisible Forms), a collection of essays about cinema, photography and other arts (Carnal), a biography of the wonderful English film-maker Humphrey Jennings and a history of the Great Pyramid. I have also collaborated with the cartoonist Hunt Emerson on several projects, including a comic version of Dante's Inferno and the forthcoming Bloke's Progress, inspired by the ideas of John Ruskin. When not writing books, I enjoy making short films, including a vampire version of the Scottish play, Dracbeth, and Exquisite Corpse, based on the novel of that name by Robert Irwin; they can be seen on YouTube.
