Photographs

Modern novels aren’t usually illustrated, but because protagonist Ticonderoga Fox is a photographer, each chapter of New Old World opens with a photograph. Most are mine, some are my family’s, and a few are “found” photos. Below is a sampling of these photographs, beginning with a context shot to show how they appear at the chapter starts.

 

Chapter 2: Gerry

Ti was named in part for Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York.  This is an old family snapshot taken of the fort by my father.

 

Chapter 3: Mitch

The Kodak rangefinder that Mitch passed down to Ti.

 

Chapter 4: Lenny

The “Allow Me” sculpture in Pioneer Courthouse Square, Portland.

 

Chapter 7: Choices

The Gateway Arch in St. Louis.

 

Chapter 15: Ruin

Boules game in Rouen.

 

Chapter 17: Beat

The staircase of the former Beat Hotel in Paris.

 

Chapter 18: Offers

Shakespeare and Company bookstore in the Latin Quarter. I took this when I visited Paris in 2011, and I’m not completely sure it was there in 1988, when Ti visited.

 

Chapter 20: Hiatus

Pollarded trees in France. Ti hated them.

 

Chapter 22: Mail

Pont Alexandre III in Paris in 1988, before it was completely refurbished and gilded.

 

Chapter 24: Adrift

Old harbor in Honfleur, where Thom did a poor job of displaying his piloting skills.  And he snored.

 

Chapter 25: Anew

Gardian in Arles, en famille during a parade instead of chasing down bulls in the Camargue.

 

Chapter 28: Tests

Procession at Lourdes.

 

Chapter 34: Howard 

Un bébé.

 

Chapter 31: Sebastian

A detail from Le Guérison, Ti’s “grand projet” while staying with Sebastian in Orange.
