WENDINGEN
 
Wendingen, a Dutch art magazine, was published monthly between 1918 and 1931. Many of the 116 issues were edited and designed by Hendrik Theodorus Wijdeveld, a Dutch architect and designer. It was published for architects and interior designers by Amsterdam publisher Hooge Brug and was a mouthpiece for the architect association "Architectura et Amicitia", an Amsterdam-based society, which developed into the major representative of the Amsterdam School. H. Th. Wijdeveld was the chief editor.
       Eight issues were devoted to Frank Lloyd Wright's work. The first was Volume IV, Number 11, 1921. The cover, designed by El Lissitzky, is considered to be one of his greatest compositions.
       In 1925, a series of seven issues were published on the
  work of Wright, Volume VII, Numbers 3 - 9.
       That year all seven issues were combined into a bound volume entitled "The Life Work of the American Architect:
Frank Lloyd Wright", 1925, published by C.A. Mees Santpoort, Holland. In 1947 A. Kroch ordered 500 copies of the remaining unbound stock and published the volume in 1948.
       In 1965, Horizon Press republished a boxed version entitled
"The Work of Frank Lloyd Wright, The Great Wendingen Edition"
       For more information on the Wendingen publications see... Wright included one photograph of the Steffens home in Volume VII, Numbers 4, page xx.

Description: "The New Time. Some thoughts on the Work of Frank Lloyd Wright. In de laatste jaren pas is het den kunstenaars bewust geworden, dat een waarlijk moderne kunst niet steunt op vormen, die in 't wilde weg gegrepen zijn, maar haar oorsprong slechts vindt en een vasten ondergrond heeft in datgene, wat men den tijdgeest noemt. Het is het bewustzijn, dat moest komen na de vele decepties, die elke willekeurige,persoonlijke uiting weer meebracht, persoonlijk dan opgevat in den zin van het enge, het bekrompene..." (Rough translation: "In recent years, the artists has become aware that a truly modern art is not based on forms, which are seized in random, but its origin only and has a fast surface in what one calls the Zeitgeist. It is the consciousness that was to come after the many deceptions that any personal expression brought back, then personally understood in the sense of the scary, the straitened..."

Description: "The Dutch magazine Wendingen was published from 1918 to 1931. Initiated by the architect Wijdeveld its first issue caused a sensation.

Its pages are attached as in a Japanese block book, were stitched together with raffia. Here, for the first time, the covers of all 116 issues of Wendingen are reproduced in full colour. ...the absolute peak without a doubt came with the issues devoted to he work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The first appeared in 1921 (cover) and featured the imperial hotel in Tokyo, with an article by Berlage and the celebrated cover design by Lissitzky. This was followed four years later by a series of seven issues devoted to ‘The Life-work of Frank Lloyd Wright', which was to become one of Wright’s favourite books." The cover features number 36. The series of seven are numbers 58-64. 8.25 x 6.25. (First Edition)
