By Frank Lloyd Wright
After commissioning Wright to design his home in 1893, William Herman Winslow also charged him with the design of this book, which they printed together by hand. The text is a quintessential expression of Arts and Crafts philosophy, but the design, apart from its great emphasis on decoration does not follow the usual Arts and Crafts lines. Rather it shows the innovative brilliance of Wright, ahead of his time in bookwork, just as he was giving the lead in architecture. Published in: (Decorative Designs - Hanks, Pg 4), (Arch Rev 6/1900 pg 63), (Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie, Birk, Pg 77). This item was exhibited in Japan from January 2 - July 28, 1991 at four different museums as part of the exhibit titled “Frank Lloyd Wright Retrospective”.

Title: Alfonso Iannelli, Modern By Design (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Top Five Books, LLC, Oak Park, Illinois)
Author: Jameson, David
Description: The first biography of the influential modernist artist and sculptor. In 1914 Frank Lloyd Wright asked an unknown twenty-six-year-old Italian-American immigrant to sculpt the strikingly geometric figures for his landmark Chicago masterpiece, Midway Gardens. Decades later, when New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art installed one of Midway Gardens' female "Sprite" sculptures, they listed Wright as its only artist. In all those years that followed the original project, Wright never publicly referred to the actual sculptor responsible for those remarkable figures, perhaps preferring to keep the secret of their success away from the world. That secret was Alfonso Iannelli. (Publisher’s description.) Includes more than 350 full-color plates. We assisted the author by providing correspondence between Wright and Iannelli concerning Midway Gardens. Original list price $80.00. Gift from David Jameson. (First Edition)

Title: Wright on Exhibit. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Architectural Exhibitions (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Princeton University Press, Princeton and Oxford)
Author: Smith, Kathryn
Description: "The first history of Frank Lloyd Wright's exhibitions of his own work—a practice central to his career. More than one hundred exhibitions of Frank Lloyd Wright's work were mounted between 1894 and his death in 1959. Wright organized the majority of these exhibitions himself and viewed them as crucial to his self-presentation as his extensive writings. He used them to promote his designs, appeal to new viewers, and persuade his detractors. Wright on Exhibit presents the first history of this neglected aspect of the architect’s influential career. Drawing extensively from Wright’s unpublished correspondence, Kathryn Smith challenges the preconceived notion of Wright as a self-promoter who displayed his work in search of money, clients, and fame. She shows how he was an artist-architect projecting an avant-garde program, an innovator who expanded the palette of installation design as technology evolved, and a social activist driven to revolutionize society through design. While Wright’s earliest exhibitions were largely for other architects, by the 1930s he was creating public installations intended to inspire debate and change public perceptions about architecture..."
