The Americans by Robert Frank( Book )

38 editions published between 1959 and 2016 in English and held by 1,561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: In 1958, the first edition of Robert Frank's The Americans was published in Paris. Les Americains contained Frank's 83 photographs in the same sequence as all subsequent editions, with the image on the right hand page, but juxtaposed with historical texts about American society and politics, gathered by Alain Bosquet. The following year, in the first American edition, the French texts were removed and an introduction by Jack Kerouac was added. Over the subsequent 50 years, The Americans has been republished in many editions, in numerous languages, with a variety of cover designs and even in a range of sizes. It is the most famous photography book ever published, and it changed the face of the medium forever. Robert Frank discussed with his publisher, Gerhard Steidl, the idea of producing a new edition using modern scanning and the finest tritone printing. The starting point was to bring original prints from New York to Gottingen, Germany, where Steidl is based. In July 2007, Frank visited Gottingen. A new format for the book was worked out and new typography selected. A new cover was designed and Frank chose the book cloth, foil for embossing and the endpaper. Most significantly, as he has done for every edition of The Americans, Frank changed the cropping of many of the photographs, usually including more information. Two images were changed completely from the original 1958 and 1959 editions

"From April 1955, when he secured a Guggenheim Fellowship (with recommendations from Walker Evans, Edward Steichen, Meyer Shapiro, Alexey Brodovitch, and Alexander Liberman), to June 1956, Robert Frank made a number of short trips out from New York and one long (nine-month) journey to the West Coast in a 1950 Ford to photograph America. From the more than twenty thousand images (on 687 rolls of film) that resulted, Frank eventually chose 83 of them and arranged them into four chapters, each beginning with a flag image. ... Such a simple intention for a book that would so alter the course of modern photography ... The Delpire first edition Les Americains (1958) is more like a sociological study wherein Frank's photographs appear as illustrations of the probing texts printed on facing pages, gathered by Alain Bosquet from dozens of illustrious writers"--The Book of 101 Books : Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century / edited by Andrew Roth.

What we have seen = Was haben wir gesehen by Robert Frank( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yet another superb volume in the photographer's popular series of visual diaries, What We Have Seen is all about people and places in the long and convivial life of Robert Frank (born 1924). Opening and closing with the zoom on the dial of a clock tower, serving as a reminder of the silent but constant passage of time, the book is laden with memories and pictures of old photographs. Like a leitmotif carrying us through the images, the word "souvenir" pops up under a magnifying glass positioned on a French text as a reading device. Frank's house in Mabou is once again portrayed as a popular retreat for people such as Jack Kerouac, Gerhard Steidl, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs and Frank's family members. As ever, Frank's visual diaries constitute an important part of both his later work and developments in the ongoing art of the photobook." - Publisher's website
