Item description for Come Again by Robert Frank...

In November of 1991 Robert Frank went to Beirut on a commission to photograph the city's devastated downtown in the aftermath of the Lebanese civil war (1975-1990). Much of the work he did there, together with that of five other photographers with whom he shared the assignment, was put together in Beirut City Centre by Editions du Cypres in 1992. Alongside that commissioned work, he also made Polaroids of the city and its environs, which, on his return home, he stowed away in his studio. It was only many years later that he considered those images again, and used them to create a sketchbook's worth of Polaroid collages. Come Again is a facsimile reprint of that notebook. In recent years Frank has worked almost exclusively with Polaroids, exploring the collage and assemblage possibilities of the instant photograph. Come Again, which comes as a sewn softcover in a paper bag, printed with special four-color matt inks and a Polaroid varnish, offers insight into the early stages of Frank's experimentation with the Polaroid and presents a previously unseen artist's book.

Reviews - What do customers think about Come Again?

I get a bang out of him Still  Sep 19, 2007
I won't lie, I bought this, flipped through it once and then salted it away in my collection. I love it. I think it is great. I like how he breaks things up, put it all together, and sends it up the flagpole.
A great collectable work of art  Jan 5, 2007
Robert Frank, a photographer's photographer, and really the Bob Dylan of the medium, has a stark and taciturn way of seeing things that is manifest in this book. It is published at the launch of a 5 year program for Gerhard Steidl, the finest publisher in the world, to release new Frank books, re-release old ones beautifully, and reveal undisclosed bodies of work, and will include all of Frank's films.

The invitation to photograph Beirut was tendered to a number of world famous photographers in 1991 by the Harriri Foundation, including Koudelka, Burri, Depardon and Basilico, and these Poloroids that Frank made there were pasted into a graph-paper notebook. This artful facsimile is a tactile and visual delight.

I bought a number of copies because it is a small edition and I expect it to be out of print and valuable very quickly and it is marvelous to have copies of precious books to present to friends as gifts.
