  2. Picturing Wright: An Album from FLLW's Photographer

    Picturing Wright: An Album from FLLW's Photographer

    $45.00

    No photographer during renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s lifetime was granted as much personal and professional access as his official photographer, Pedro E. Guerrero, who spent 20 years shooting Wright’s work, his homes and many key moments in his life. Picturing Wright gathers 200 of these compelling images to capture Wright in a refreshing new light. The photographs come to life through the entertaining, often humorous stories Guerrero tells to accompany them, from what Wright thought of cows to how he rearranged clients’ interiors to suit his own vision. An afterword to this updated edition by Dixie Legler Guerrero, Guerrero’s wife, traces the photographer’s life after Picturing Wright was first published. The book, a newly edited and curated edition building on the initial 1993 release (out of print for more than 20 years), has a group of new color photographs and features a foreword by noted architecture critic Martin Filler.

  5. Frank Lloyd Wright Designs: The Sketches, Plans and Drawings

    Frank Lloyd Wright Designs: The Sketches, Plans and Drawings

    $85.00

    The most 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 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.

  8. Loving Frank by N. Horan

    Loving Frank by N. Horan

    $15.00

    The romantic relationship between Frank Lloyd Wright and Mamah Borthwick — following his design of her and husband Edwin Cheney's home — changed the life of Wright, Borthwick, and their respective families. First time novelist Nancy Horan imagines the burgeoning relationship between the two; their flight to Europe and Mamah's relationship to Swedish feminist, Ellen Key; the creation of Wright's Wisconsin home, Taliesin for himself and Mamah; and her tragic end, all from Borthwick's point of view. Loving Frank takes historical fact and creates a sensitive portrayal of a woman at the turn of the last century who made the decision to leave her husband and children for a brilliant artist, and the ultimate catastrophic consequences of that decision.

Published for Wright’s sesquicentennial, this new edition will be a trusted companion for anyone embarking on their own journeys through the wonder and genius of Frank Lloyd Wright.
