"A great architect is not made by a way of brain nearly so much as he is made by way of a cultivated, enriched heart." Frank Lloyd Wright" --Frank Lloyd Wright

Format: Paperback
The title "Basic Art Series" is a little misleading,as this excellent series offers much more than just the basics. There are many Wright designs featured here,besides the iconic Falling Water (cover image). The pictures are large and clear, obviously many are recently taken,and these sit well alongside plans and design sketches and early photographs. Text is well researched and easy to follow.

Taschen have the eye to do justice to Wright's clean lines. There were more b/w photos than I'd wished, but that might be suitably Wright-esque. A crisp overall presentation worth a place on reference shelf or coffee table.

As an armchair architect, this book does what I wanted it to. There are great photos in there, and a decent sized book so the photos are of a decent size. It works through chronologically, and rightfully concentrates on the buildings, not the architect. There is lots of info to contextualize each construction. Well worth getting if you are interested in his work.

As Taschen's publications are, this is well and copiously ill ustrated with an illuminating text -- about the architect & his main buildings.

Another useful starter book. Provides the basic overview and information on Wright which can be further explored with more detailed books.
