Abstract:

300 plates in this oversized book (9" x 12") faithfully reproduce the details of Frank Lloyd Wright's drawings. Great care was taken to photograph the handwritten notes, erasures, and corrections of this great architect. The drawings are for houses (big & small), apartment & industrial buildings, skyscrapers, churches, floating cabins, bridges, motels, community centers, an amusement park, a sports pavilion, a summer colony, a self-service garage, a boat club, and more.

Frank Lloyd Wright's presentation drawings are dramatic, colorful, richly detailed images that beautifully reflect the master architect's vision. A Wright quotation accompanies each of the twelve drawings reproduced in this calendar: the American System-Built House; the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church; the Arizona State Capitol, "Oasis"; the Raul Bailleres House; the Cloverleaf Housing Project; the Katherine and Herbert Jacobs House, "Solar Hemicycle"; the Jane and Herbert F. Johnson House, "Wingspread"; the Living City; the Alice Millard House, "La Miniatura"; the Ruth and John C. Pew House; Taliesin; and Unity Temple.
