The photography of Robert Frank has been well documented and there's not a lot more I can add to the many many eulogy's you can find all over the web. But for me I've always admired, apart from his shots, his layout skills, the montages he put together in the 60's, 70s and 80s are inspiring for any art director, I've never been quite sure whether they were intended or just thrown together, maybe somebody can help me out on that one. The type and handwriting is beautiful in an ugly way and very hard to imitate, and believe me, I've tried hard enough. These spreads are taken from a book I bought in 1995 called 'Moving Out', not sure if it's still available, but it's ace.
