Title: Wright for Wright  (Hard Cover - DJ)  (Published by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc., New York)

Author: Howard, Hugh; Photographed by Straus, Roger III

Description: The buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright exercise a kind of architectural magic on the people who visit them, inspiring a sense of wonder at their visual elements, dramatic energy, and ingenious compositional features. These qualities are no more evident than in the buildings that Wright designed for himself and his family. Wright for Wright is the first book to focus exclusively on these seven houses and ten other structures. Free from the constraints of the client-architect relationship, the buildings present Wright at his unfettered best. Photographed for the first time in exquisite, full-color panoramic views by longtime Wright photographer Roger Straus, these images capture the buildings as part of the landscape-- the way Wright envisioned them. As well, Hugh Howard's insightful text reveals an intimate understanding of the great architect's art and philosophy. (Dust Jacket) First Edition. Original HC List Price $50.00. Two copies.

Title: Taliesin West 2014 (1937 - S.241).

Description: Set of 87 - Color 13 x 20 High Res Digital images photographed on April 16, 2014 during a trip to Scottsdale, Arizona. Ten years after our first visit to Taliesin West, and armed with a newer camera, we had the opportunity to visit Taliesin West again, tour the complex and thank Arnold Roy, Margo Stipe and Oskar Muńoz, for there assistance in our endeavor publishing "Frank Lloyd Wright, Nakoma Clubhouse and Sculptures
." It was my pleasure! Frank Lloyd Wright’s first trip to the Phoenix area was in January 1927, for the purpose of working on the Arizona Biltmore. In 1928, they were back in the Phoenix area. The set up a temporary camp they named ‘Ocotillo,’ built on the site near the project San Marcos-in-the-Desert. When the stock market crashed, Ocotillo was abandoned, but not the warm winters of Arizona. They purchased land Northwest of Phoenix in 1937 and began building Taliesin West, the winter home of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Fellowship. At the time, like the Arizona Biltmore, they were in the middle of the "wilderness," surrounded only by open and vast vegetation desert rocks and wilderness as far as the eye could see. Today, Taliesin West is bordered on three sides by development and the fourth by the McDowell Mountains. Photographed by Douglas M. Steiner on April 16, 2014.
