The coffee table book is a classic addition to a classy abode. For a table topper that won't disappoint, look no further than Robert Frank's "The Americans," originally published in 1958. It's a visually stunning portrayal of American life from 1955-1956 from the view of the talented photographer. The book has been reissued under the careful watch of Robert Frank himself, who personally adjusted the cropping and text for the book, in some cases revealing whole photographs previously cut off.
Each vintage image is complete with Frank's captions and the book includes an introduction by the famed author Jack Kerouac.
