Corinna Sargood and David Wheatley worked with Carter intensively on image-centered adaptations of her work: Sargood illustrated the two Virago books of fairy tales edited by Carter; and Wheatley directed the film The Magic Toyshop, adapted from Carter’s 1967 novel. Both interviews focus on the process of collaboration between the writer and the illustrator or director; Sargood’s and Wheatley’s understanding of and involvement with fairy tales, independent of Carter; and these visual artists’ fascination with Carter’s work as well as their knowledge of Carter’s “luggage” of images. In this collage of inter-views, Kate Webb’s observations contribute to place Carter’s fascination with film in a larger context of image and word re-production.
