Robert Franks’ photobook The Americans

Steidl will publish the 50th anniversary edition of Robert Franks’ photobook The Americans next month. Through this book, it claims, Frank ‘established a new expression of documentary photography which was objective and highly personal’. It has been redesigned by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl, involving a range of changes which include the re-scanning of the vintage prints, new crops on many of the images, the replacement of one street scene with a different frame, and a complete redesign of the typography by Claas Moller.


Available from 15 May, it is priced £25.
