Description

After The Americans, The Lines of My Hand is arguably Robert Frank's most important book, and without doubt the publication that established his autobiographical, sometimes confessional, approach to bookmaking.

The book was originally published by Yugensha in Tokyo in 1972, and this new Steidl edition, made in close collaboration with Frank, follows and updates the first US edition by Lustrum Press of 1972.

The Lines of My Hand is structured chronologically and presents selections from every stage of Frank's work until 1972--from early photos in Switzerland in 1945-46, to images of his travels in Peru, Paris, Valencia, London and Wales, and to contact sheets from his 1955-56 journey through the US that resulted in The Americans. Here too are intimate photos of Frank's young family, later photo-collages and stills from films including Pull My Daisy and About Me: A Musical.
