Publisher Note

Less Américains was a remake of Robert Frank’s classic photobook, The Americans. Eighty-three new images were created by digitally erasing most of the visual content from Frank’s photographs, leaving only solitary details from the originals. The sequencing remained faithful to Frank’s 2008 Steidl edition of the book whilst the design of the covers and title pages were influenced by the first Delpire edition printed in France in 1958.
