KIRKUS REVIEW

The years 1887-1941 were vital ones in American architecture, and they spanned the life and career of Frank Lloyd Wright. This is a companion volume to his autobiography, and covers his work, in descriptive and analytical text and photographs. From the Chicago architecture of the '80's to the progress of depression years and the current revival, this survey includes the characteristic projects of varied architectural facets, and serves as a virtual history of the whole period, from the prairie houses to the Taliesin period. Definitely limited in interest to architects, and allied interests, to whom Wright stands as the leader of the modern movement.
