Tamsin Rosewell Interview

By UCL Faculty of Arts & Humanities, on 9 November 2021

Illustrator and bookseller Tamsin Rosewell joins me today to talk about her experiences of reading and how she made the move into bookselling and illustration. She shares her deep love of non-fiction and how the speed at which you read has no bearing on how good a book is. We chat about parcel hogs, window displays, and whether Blake’s Tyger was in fact an epic cat.
