Title: Glass. History, Manufacture and Its Universal Application (Published by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company, Pittsburgh)

Author: Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company

Description: Introduction. "This book endeavors to give an account of glass-making from the crude furnaces of early times to the mammoth plants of today, and to indicate how much more widespread the use of this world-material inevitably must become in the near future..." Two photographs of the Frank Lloyd Wright Dana House. Entrance: "Leaded Glass Curtain Designs. In this illustration is shown an effective set of leaded glass curtain designs, composed of clear glass with delicately-tinted and iridescent color blocks. These windows have become extremely popular; dispensing altogether with lace curtains, the glass is carried out in colors to harmonize with the draperies and the general color scheme of the room. In the middle foreground may be seen two leaded glass lanterns in keeping with the window designs." (P.142). Fernery Doors: "An example of curtain design using clear or semi-obscure glass in delicate tints, to harmonize with the draperies." (P.144).  (First Edition.)

Size: 8.5 x 11.25

Pages: Pp 215

A traveling exhibit from May 10, 2001 - July 20, 2003, in five locations.)

Author: Sloan, Julie L.

Description: With inexhaustible creativity, Frank Lloyd Wright designed an estimated 4,365 windows for over 160 of his buildings. With this boldly abstract glass, he distanced himself from his contemporaries Louis Comfort Tiffany and John La Farge and invented a fully modern language for ornamental design. Sloan identifies three phases in Wright's evolution toward this exciting idiom. For his earliest windows, of 1885-1898, the master conceived curvilinear Queen Anne-style motifs. In his famed Prairie-period homes of 1900-1910, he placed lambent glass of autumnal palette and complex patterns of chevrons and rectangles. Finally, vanguard European art and architecture helped inspire his most joyous and inventive light screens. (Publisher’s description.) (First Edition)

Description: Editor: "The Wright Way? Two Frank Lloyd Wright Houses in Illinois are in the news. Both were falling into disuse and disrepair. The price tag on each was a cool million dollars, based in large measure on the value of the stained glass windows, more than 100 of them in each house...." Description: "The Wright Way... This is architectural glass of the purist form, integral ornament to the architecture. The geometric patterns relate to the lines of the architecture, becoming harmonious and of the building, rather than being applied to the building..." Includes three photographs. Description: The Dana-Thomas House. The Dana-Thomas House in Springfield, Illinois contains what is perhaps the most extensive and resplendent collection of architectural stained glass ever incorporated into a single residence by Frank Lloyd Wright... Over 250 individual stained glass panels are set in the exterior and interior walls and ceilings of the Dana-Thomas house..." Original cover price $3.50.
