A 12-foot long accordion-fold, photo-poetry book that features saturated color photographs of the 2019 West Indian American Day Carnival parade through Crown Heights Brooklyn and, on the verso, brightly colored cloth panels with a rainbow hot foil stamped poem inspired by the event.
This unique and exuberant book is a both a dynamic page-turner when driven in its codex form and an incandescent gallery piece when fully unfolded.
The annual West Indian American Day Carnival is the biggest cultural event in New York City and draws over one million people each year.
The book comes in a fancy clamshell box with a hot foil stamped title on the box spine
