Roy DeCarava and Langston Hughes' 'Sweet Flypaper of Life' featured in The New York Times Book Review

Congratulations First Print Press! In this weekend's New York Times Book Review, Nicole Herrington features three books that trace a history of race relations in America through art, and Roy DeCarava and Langston Hughes: The Sweet Flypaper of Life is one of them. The book "is an incredible wonder that is so compact you can almost cradle it in your palm," Herrington writes. "A sense of humanity permeates the black-and-white photographs: young boys and girls at play, being groomed or whispering to a parent; couples in animated conversation or holding each other close at a house party; pedestrians heading to work, to school or to the park. And DeCarava’s narrow range of deep tones breathes beautiful life into the black faces of the young and old."
