What a eye-popping cover!
This delightful flag streamer photography art print by Youngna Park titled “Winter Flags (East Village, New York)” conjures up my childhood and growing up in New York City. Used during block parties, a new store opening, or simply hanging from a storefront to a nearby tree all year round, they never fail to take me back in time.
