A legendary book dummy!!
"Conceived, designed, written and made by hand as a prototype by master photographer Roy DeCarava in the early 1960s yet unpublished for nearly half a century, 'The Sound I Saw' has largely existed, until now, as a legend among the cognoscenti of the photography world. Presented as a stream of 196 soulful images interspersed with DeCarava's own evocative poetry, the book is, in its form and effect, the printed equivalent of jazz."--the publisher
