First the book is larger. I attached a photo of the two editions side by side. Next much of the text has been expanded. The photos are mostly the same between the two editions, but they are now mostly in color and generally a bit larger. The text has recent information about the state of the buildings. Some have moved, been damaged by earthquakes, razed by storms. Many have been restored, put in public trust, saved for their merit. Some are open to the public. I see only one building added as Mr. Wright's first 000 project. There might be more, but nothing added since Mr. Wright's death. There is nothing about Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center in Madison, Wisconsin for example. Some of the houses end up with different catalog numbers.
My love of this book has to do with it providing the locations of all these buildings. Many of these buildings are still in private hands. They are never fully captured by the photos. The angles and depth are missing. It looks like the maps have been made more detailed. GPS style coordinates are provided for each building in the catalog. What is missing it the Geographical Index by Zip code as it existed in the Second Edition. It might be a sign of the times to provide the GPS coordinates.Read more ›
It is important to understand that the book is organized chronologically. As an example, it is not convenient to see all of the wright buildings in Madison, Wisconsin. I had to add paper bookmarks to the map of the Madison area near the back of the book, then use additional sticky notes to mark the pages for each building in that area so I could plan my day. It does work, but it's cumbersome. (By contrast, The Frank Lloyd Wright Field Guide by Thomas A. Heinz is a little less detailed, but is organized by region.)
As a reference while researching his work at home, or to see the evolution of his style over time, it works much better.
