Description 

Illustrated By Vintage Postcards

The Wisconsin-born Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) is recognized worldwide as an iconic architectural genius. In 1911 he designed Taliesin to use as his personal residence, architectural studio, and working farm. A century later Randolph C. Henning has assembled a splendid collection of rare vintage postcards, some never before published, that provides a revealing and visually unique journey through Wright's work at Taliesin. Included are intimate images of Taliesin at various stages and views of the building just after the tragic 1914 fire. The postcards also depict nearby buildings designed by Wright, including the Romeo and Juliet windmill and two buildings for the Hillside Home School. Henning provides useful explanations that highlight relevant details and accompany each image. Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin documents and celebrates Wright's 100-year-old masterpiece.

"These postcard photos provide the 'missing link' in the evolving designs of Taliesin. It has always been a difficult building to understand through photographs, but Henning clears up many of the mysteries. I had many 'a-ha' moments as I studied the images and accompanying text. The images of the folks standing in the ashes after the fire at Taliesin are chilling and reveal the fascination with tragedy." - Thomas A. Heinz AIA
