‘Thoughts For My Children took shape over many years, in many places and at many times. Perspectives and insights on life’s journey would come to me, usually out of the blue and at unexpected times, sometimes on planes far above the clouds, in new places or in familiar surroundings where my mind would wander.’ – Scott Mead.
Over time, this collection of thoughts evolved into a book that explores family, legacy and what it means to share the lessons we learn with future generations. The images that sit alongside the text, part of Mead’s extensive photographic archive, continue to resonate beyond the pages of the family album and expand the reach of the words into something at once deeply personal and universal.
Thoughts for My Children is meant to be picked up and carried with you, the small format inviting moments of contemplation and celebrating the lives unfolding around it.
