The Americans. Photographs by Robert Frank. Introduction by Jack Kerouac. Scalo, Z├╝rich/D.A.P., New York, 1993. First Scalo edition. 179 pp. Oblong quarto. Hardbound in photo-illustrated dust jacket. Black-and-white reproductions.

A beautiful reprint of Frank's "sad poem sucked out of America."

"It was Frank's The Americans that made the photographic book into an artform in its own right. Frank was following a lead set by Morris' book [The Inhabitants] and, especially, by Evans' American Photographs, both of which are designed to let pictures play off each other in a way that controls and reinforces their effect on the viewer. Even Klein's New York book displays this tendency. But Frank's goes much further, creating a denser, richer, deeper structure of images than any book before it."--Colin Westerbeck in Michel Frizot, et. al., The New History of Photography
