American A contains a selection of 80 photos from a lot of 3000. The photos came from an auction and had belong to different local and regional newspapers from the United States between 1950 and 1969. The pictures were taken to illustrate the local news, but we find here today a perfect documentation of different topics and movements such as the feminist, beatniks, counterculture and pacifist, among others. The stories and authors behind remain anonymous (they couldn´t be found), but their work is the starting point for more than 200 artists, writers and interpreters to create new pieces of art contain in the next three books (American B, C & D). This book is a source of inspiration and documentation from a unique time.
