The Sound I Saw: Improvisation on a Jazz Theme

Phaidon, 2001.
Condition: Nr Fine
First Edition

Conceived, designed, written, and made by hand as a prototype by master photographer Roy DeCarava (b. 1919) in the early 1960s yet unpublished for nearly half a century, The Sound I Saw has largely existed, until now, as a legend among the cognoscenti of the photography world.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. Item #14610
