June means different things in different places: in Dublin, it’s Bloomsday; in Sweden, it’s Midsummer. In Hyde Park, it’s the 57th Street Art Fair, held on the first full weekend of June every year. This time around, we’re honoring the vendors & passersby who will descend on our thoroughfare this weekend with a window brimming with art & photography books.
