Author: Designed by: Lemme, Shannon

Description: The city of Chicago played an important role in Frank Lloyd Wright’s long and prolific career. It was here that he first found architectural work, in 1887. At that time, the entire country was witnessing rapidly expanding industrialization, and Chicago, still rebuilding after the devastating fire of 1871 and strategically located in the middle of the country, was booming. The twenty-year-old Wright worked first as a draftsman for Joseph Lyman Silsbee, then soon landed a job with the prestigious firm of Adler and Sullivan... (From flap.)

Title: Competition Drawings From the Studio of Frank Lloyd Wright (Soft Cover, Wire Bound) (Published by John Randal Publishing and Wilkerson & Hughes, LLC. Regina, SK, Canada, Altoona, Florida)

Author: John Randal Publishing; Wilkerson & Hughes

Description: After Frank Lloyd Wright abandoned his wife and children in 1909, there were no major architectural commissions until 1916 due to wide spread condemnation across the USA. Very few residential designs were built during that time. Until 1930, there were national residential design competitions with large prize awards. This book contains drawings discovered in 4 different Residential Drawing competitions between 1913 and 1918. None of these designs have Frank Lloyd Wright's official name on the entry forms, however his Drafting Superintendent's name was used on several. If you examine the drawings closely, you will see Frank Lloyd Wright's unique private "Graphic Signature". Architects of his generation all had a unique Graphic they penciled onto every drawing. His graphic is a box with external outline. Over his entire career, Frank Lloyd Wright made slight changes from a penciled box to a red box, yet it remained on his drawings unto the end.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright Designs, The Sketches, Plans and Drawings (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Rizzoli International Publications, Inc. New York)

Author: Pfeiffer, Bruce Brooks

Description: The first major presentation in decades of the visionary drawings of the artist-architect and master designer. Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect of vast and unprecedented vision, whose work is not only still admired by the critics and carefully studied by historians but is also widely beloved. Comfortable spaces, humanly scaled, with extraordinary attention to detail-as seen in a range of architectural forms-are at the center of Wright’s enduring appeal. This vision and attention is nowhere more evident than in the drawings. It has been said that had Wright left us only drawings, and not his buildings as well, he would still be celebrated for his brilliant artistry, and this is borne out here. Even more significant, and shown here as never before, are the magical first moments of invention and inspiration-Wright’s earliest sketches, some never before published-which offer unique insight into the mind of the master architect. Frank Lloyd Wright Designs is the most important and comprehensive book to be published on the drawings, designs, conceptual sketches, elevations, and plans of Wright, with particular emphasis on the development of certain important projects. It includes the best-known and beloved projects-like Fallingwater, The Coonley House, Midway Gardens, the Guggenheim, the Imperial Hotel-as well as a range of intriguing, unfamiliar, and previously unpublished drawings by Wright. (Publishers description.) Original list price $85.00. (First Edition)
