The American Monument (Special Edition)

The American Monument (Special Edition)


The American Monument Special Edition (1976)

With more than 200 photographs of monuments across the country--some recognizable, but many not--The American Monument, itself a landmark in Friedlander’s career, examines America’s fascination with immortalizing itself. Notably, the book is bound ledger-style, so the prints can be removed for framing. Publisher Leslie Katz writes: "This photographer in these photographs affirms the residual order in the crazy scene. He understands and brings us human civilization, embattled but intact in the various wilds of American enterprise, whether downtown, in suburbia, or on the roof."
