Description: “Introduction. As we approach the 21st Century and the 100th Anniversary of the Arts & Crafts Movement in America, we have witnessed the emergence of Limbert, Lifetime and Stickley Brothers furniture makers to a significant place in the world of collecting. The interest in the designs by makers from this period has rivaled that of any in the antique world. Comparatively, the Arts & Crafts market is a recent phenomenon with much scholarly research being done regarding both the social and artistic aspects, but collectors are also looking for sources to help determine the value of their pieces.

Title: American Art Deco (Hard Cover - DJ) (Published by World Publication Group, Inc., North Dighton, MA) Two Copies.
Author: Weber, Eva
Description: Publisher’s description: "Art deco is a distinctive modernist style that took its name from the Exposition Internationale des Art Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925. The popularity of art deco during the 1920s and 1930s influenced modernist designers in many fields: ceramics, textiles, interiors, glassware, furniture, as well as architecture.
Many of art deco's greatest practitioners worked in several media to produce exuberant buildings with seductive art deco interiors. Frank Lloyd Wright, Ely Jacques Kahn, and Eliel Saarinen were just a few of the architects who produced bold and vital art deco designs. This volume exquisitely reproduced the rich heritage of art deco design, from Sidney Waugh's glassware for Steuben Glass and Grant Wood's paintings to Donald Deskey's interiors in Radio City Music Hall and William Van Alen's Chrysler Building. Includes 11 pages on Wright, and 8 photographs including the cover. Original HC List Price $16.99. (First Edition)

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright: Art Collector. Secessionist Prints From The Turn of The Century (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by the University of Texas Press, Austin)
Author: Alofsin, Anthony
Description: "These Secessionist art prints, acquired by Frank Lloyd Wright and his lover Mamah Borthwick Cheney during their infamous flight to Europe in 1909–1910, reveal a new dimension of the architect’s taste and aesthetic preferences. This previously unknown and newly discovered group of prints from his personal art collection shows that around the turn of the twentieth century Wright had a surprising interest in European artists pursuing their own versions of modernism. Identified from careful archival research, the prints demonstrate how richly diffuse and multifaceted modernism was before the codification of a modernist canon. Wright, a revolutionary architect, preferred the work of Secessionists to that of the avant-garde of expressionism, cubism, and futurism. To Wright, the artists he selected were modern, and they appealed deeply to his interest in landscapes and graphic techniques of reproduction." (Dust jacket.) Original list price $40.00.
