Book of the Week. HIGH WIRE, a collaboration between writer Lloyd Jones and artist Euan Macleod, is an arrestingly beautiful and deeply thoughtful picture book for grown-ups. The book explores the tensions, exhilarations and dangers of the metaphorical tightrope walked by all who step out above the void in the search of new experience, and other tentative structures reaching across voids and gaps. Macleod's figures struggle against consuming backgrounds, or to emerge from the scribbles that are their genesis, while Jones's words slice and hum with the clarity of taut wires.
