"William Allin Storrer has produced the first true and complete catalogue raisonne of Wright's work, and it is stunning.... Mr. Storrer has given us more than a story; he has written an epic. This book, more than any other, makes the remarkable length and breadth of Wright's career clear." - Paul Goldberger, New York Times Book Review "Storrer... knows more about Frank Lloyd Wright than anyone else, and he's produced the ultimate encyclopedia, with 965 photographs of 470 buildings and an insightful, fact-filled text." - Robert Campbell, Boston Globe"From the Publisher:
Published to critical acclaim more than a decade ago, "The Frank Lloyd Wright Companion" brought together in one volume all the essential descriptions, photographs, and plans of everything built by America's most famous architect. Now, for this handsomely produced revised edition, William Allin Storrer brings the history of every Wright structure up to the present. Storrer treats the full range of Wright's architecture - from vacation cottages in Montana and Michigan, to such monuments of modernism as the Johnson Wax Building and the Guggenheim Museum, to buildings completed after Wright's death in 1959. Since the first edition, some of Wright's buildings have been relocated, some have been refurbished, and, sadly, some have even been destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Storrer documents these changes and includes new information about the extent of Wright's work on the buildings, the contributions of his associates, and the details of his business arrangements. Wright aficionados will be especially pleased to find comprehensive coverage of the newly discovered Mitchell residence in Racine, Wisconsin. Organized chronologically, "The Frank Lloyd Wright Companion" features a description of each building that details the history of its design, construction, and ownership. Floor plans allow readers intimate access to each of Wright's built works. With nearly 1,000 photographs (many new to this edition), elevations, historical images, and floor plans that show changes in Wright's preliminary plans, this reference is unmatched in its authority. The indispensable centerpiece of any Wright collection, the newly revised "Companion" is a must for any serious library of art and architecture.
