The world is wide awake — are you?

Here's the trailer for my next book with Helen Frost, Wake Up!

From a starred review in KIRKUS:
Lieder again demonstrates that he is not only a master of catching light where it falls,
but capturing intimate moments only the most patient of observers would notice.
His latest jaw-dropping images reveal with preternatural acumen details subtle
as the shadow of a praying mantis on a peony petal, feathers lining a tree swallow's nest,
and the tiniest of "newly hatched" cellar spiders dancing on a blade of grass, as Frost notes
"New life is everywhere — / open your eyes."

through the air, an excuse for a rapture.

A really fine, thoughtful review of my latest book with Helen Frost,
Sweep Up the Sun, in the New York Times Sunday Book Review.
"...beautiful in an unabashedly artistic way.
These photographs are as gorgeous as paintings."
