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 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.

Absolutely correct, this man is the American Architect and this book says it. Never under estimate what America can produce.
This man built monuments as shown in this book.

Small but concise book much like all the the other 'taschen basic architecture' range. Love them.

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.
