I just received my copy of Robert Frank's The Americans; the expanded version. Wow, what a great book, first off its huge. Second the quality has to be seen to appreciate, it's printed in Germany and the reproductions, binding are of the finest quality.

I have owned the standard version of the book for a decade or so and was hesitant to the same book over. Well, the moment I opened the Amazon box thoughts disappeared. Although I'm just starting to read it it is clear the author has really done their research. The addition of such items as copies of letters, including his Guggenheim grant proposal, and his contact sheets really make the book come alive.

Anyone interested in street photography needs this book! Here's a link for it:
