Frank Lloyd Wright’s graphic work is often overlooked when discussing the contributions of this seminal architect. His designs for typography, books, posters, murals and magazines have remained relatively obscure, even though they are key components of his legacy.
The author of this book has thoroughly investigated the artist’s innovative graphic work and placed it within the context of various aesthetic movements, from Arts and Crafts to Bauhaus and De Stijl. The 10 chapters – carefully annotated with endnotes – explore Wright’s foray into the world of graphic design, including book design; his influence by international sources; and his visits to Japan and Europe. Exhibitions and publications are included in the last chapter.
