Robert Frank

I missed this story on npr yesterday, marking the opening of the retrospective at the National Gallery of Art of Robert Frank's The Americans. The book, originally published by Grove Press in 1958, has recently been re-issued by Steidl. I bought a copy last summer and it is terrific. Now yet another version has been produced as an exhibition catalogue - complete with reproductions of the contact sheets from which Frank selected the 83 images in the original volume.
