Fortunately for the many admirers of his architecture, theories, and designs, Frank Lloyd Wright was not only a lover of space and a man of vision-he was also a man who liked to save things. Since he opened his first office in Chicago in 1893, Wright held on to drawings, sketches, notes, photographs, manuscripts, and correspondence. Many of those artifacts survive today in his official archive at Taliesin West in Arizona. Produced in conjunction with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, this extraordinary book offers a fresh presentation of the documents of one of the world's most famous architects. It is, in effect, a museum in a book. The unique book experience” contains 25 interactive, three-dimensional features, removable facsimiles of original documents, never-before-published architectural sketches, and an audio CD containing excerpts from Wright's weekly addresses at his architectural compound, as well as television interviews. Following the proven success of other Wright titles, this is an engaging journey into the life and work of the iconic American architect through words, pictures, and artifacts.
Margo Stipe is the registrar of the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Nothing like this, correspondence, drawings, fold out pages

This is clearly a labor of love. The solid box the book fits into is very cool. Keeps the book with about 9 clear sleeves with insert papers from gettin' smushed. A few nice big photos. Plenty a text. Other good smaller photos. And a cd of Wright speaking. It's nice to finally have some drawings to hold and unfold. I'm not sure all 18 or so of them are what I would have chosen. One in particular is pretty basic. But the mile high tower is 3 folded tall. And there's maybe 6 letters he sent out, modern letter writers might not recognize them with their notations and corrections because since computers we don't need to make such written corrections but in his day that's all they had. I'd easily have taken more and bigger drawings than any of the letters. As it is most of the drawings are 3 or 4 foldouts, very nice. Definitely worth the lower used price available on amazon.com. I think you do have to be a fan though to appreciate it. I'd love to see more books made this way, expanding the notion of what a book is or can be.
Beautiful book. Informative and stylish like the subject.

We like the look of the Craftsman style homes, even though we have yet to own one, so I thought this would be a good Christmas present for the wife. Plus a good coffee table book. Correct on both counts. It comes in a nice sleeve. When you open it there is a wealth of information on the life of FLW. There are inserts which have blueprints of some the houses. Lots of clear pictures and text. The author put a lot of thought into the design of this to make it distinctive and also honor the subject. I can thoroughly recommend it, especially at the $28 we paid for it at the time.
Very Interesting and fun book. A must have for every FLW fan

This book is absolutely amazing! I have never owned another book matching the caliber of this masterpiece. I don't think you even have to be a Frank Lloyd lover to appreciate this book. It is for everyone who can appreciate art, architecture, and learning through various ways about the genius of Wright. The book box cover, the carefully laid out plans and packets in the book illustrating the drafting and the various buildings this man created is fun and exciting. The CD is complementary in that it captures the essence of this man whose ego was the size of his largest creations----albeit he has every right to think himself the best architect who lived in the 19th and 20th centuries. If he were still with us, he would include the 21st century as a categorical imperative that he is/was the greatest architect of all time. Oh what a character he was, and oh what an absolute mind he beheld---and as genius of his craft he had all the right to be self righteous, egotistical and unapologetic. This is a downright amazing book. I am buying two, one to keep in perfect condition and the other to immerse myself in and learn and teach and adore. I will probably buy even more of this particular book as gifts--whether the person has no idea who FLW is or if they are professional architects themselves, all will be educated and enamored by it and it's accompaning accessories.
... as a gift and it was huge hit and easy to use
