A pocket-sized overview of the architect's entire career, with more than zoo photographs, drawings, and examples from Wright's own collection of Asian art.

A master of modern architecture, an artist of unrivaled international stature, Frank Lloyd Wright (1869-1959) is the ideal subject to debut as the first Tiny Folio "TM" architect. This diminutive survey features all aspects of Wright's art, from lowslung Prairie houses to the dramatic, seminal Fallingwater, to larger projects such as his two homes, Taliesin and Taliesin West, culminating in that icon of modernism, New York's Guggenheim Museum. This satisfying volume is complete with drawings and rarely seen works from Wright's own Asian art collection.

"Based on sound scholarship ... set[s] forth Wright's ideas about buildings, people, nature and their interaction... Warm, radiant pictures of his famous interiors will especially appeal to decorators... All the pictures are of the highest quality." --Roanoke Times, 10/18/98
