New York Times Sunday Book Review

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.”

    Sheer beauty & wonder! Congrats to Rick Lieder’s for this stunning review of his “stunning photographs” — a rave in the NYTBR.

    What a sensitive and laudatory review… and so well deserved! I especially liked that they called out your exquisite pairing of words and images. My favorite is the brilliant, seemingly suspended cardinal with the words “stitching earth to sky with invisible thread”. Congratulations!

    What a wonderful honor, Rick Lieder! Well-deserved. Most people don’t understand the countless hours it takes to capture those beautiful images, not always in the best outdoor conditions.

    Rick Lieder and Helen Frost make the NY Times with their magnificent Sweep Up the Sun. I just wonder what took them so long!

    Very fine work and achievement!

    Super congratulations! The finest newspaper for a review of your fine work. Wonderful book!

    You have created a new aesthetic for backyard flight, and the celebration of the overlooked. Opening eyes is a wonderful thing to do, and you have done it and continue to do it. I am so jealous.

    Looks beautiful! And looks like we need a copy for the B&B! Congrats!
