Description:

1st Printing. 40 pages. Published in 2010. Artist Book. One of the most beautiful collections in the Steidl "Robert Frank Project". The First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by Robert Frank and Gerhard Steidl: Oversize-volume format. Pictorial softcovers with white titles on the spine, as issued. Photographs and brief text by Robert Frank. Printed in tritone on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in Gottingen, Germany to the highest standards. In cardboard slipcase that is printed on one side. In publisher's original shrinkwrap. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Robert Frank's "Tal Uf Tal Ab". Black-and-white photographs selected by Robert Frank from his personal archives, which all appear in published form for the very first time. "Frank's subjects are his life now, an inquisitive existence shaped by memory: Newsstands, streetscapes, portraits of friends and his wife June Leaf, interiors, a self-portrait. This book is the latest phase in Frank's unceasing exploration of photography" (Publisher's blurb). This book is the latest manifestation of Robert Frank's unceasing melancholy, the most profound among modern artists and photographers. Despite its Arabic sound, "Tal Uf Tal Ab" is "Swiss-German. It means direction up the valley/down the valley. Now I live and wait and think mostly in the places I live: New York City and Mabou NS" (Robert Frank). "NS" is, of course, Nova Scotia. An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Frank collectors. This title is now collectible. This is one of few copies of the First Edition/First Printing still available online, is still in the publisher's original shrinkwrap, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. 29 tritone plates. Three of Robert Frank's books were selected as among the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of our time. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT FRANK TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 3869301015. Bookseller Inventory # 16323
