Frank Lloyd Wright & the Prairie School in Wisconsin: An Architectural Touring Guide
"Here is the first comprehensive guide to the Wisconsin buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright, of interest and value to all fans of Wright and of architecture in general. The author describes 46 Wright-designed buildings, as well as 36 buildings of other important architects of the Prairie School, a distinctively American architectural style. With this guide, you can tour any number of Prairie School buildings, stay in Prairie School bed-and-breakfast inns, even rent a Wright-designed lakeside cottage for the weekend.
The book is well illustrated with more than a hundred photographs, both current and historic, and includes practical information for the traveler.
The author provides histories of the design and construction of the buildings, physical descriptions, a measure of their architectural importance, their places in the architect's work, and special features that the visitor might observe. The author also includes a brief biography of Wright, placing him in the Wisconsin context, and a short history of the Prairie School, including individual sketches of its best-known Wisconsin practitioners.
For all fans of Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie School, and for all travelers who want to get more out of their trips to Wisconsin, this book will soon become a trusted and well-used companion."
