Editorial Reviews

Review

"William Allin Storrer, a scholar who has written on Wright for a quarter-century, has produced the first true and complete catalogue raisonne of Wright's work, and it is stunning....He has taken the vast forest of Wright's built work and looked at it tree by tree, labeling each and every one of those trees thoroughly and intriguingly. It is a testament to Mr. Storrer's skill that this book comes off not merely as a catalogue, but as an inspiring study of the whole Wright forest." - Paul Goldberger, New York Times Book Review"

This book is absolutely amazing. I take it with me whenever I travel to see any of Frank Lloyd Wright's homes and buildings. It lists addresses for the homes and has great color photos to help locate the homes. I don't leave home without it!

I am going to say this at the very beginning. I have owned a copy of the 2nd Edition of this book for 15 years and it is a great book for those who are interested in the buildings. I never expected the definitive 2nd edition would get an update. This book improves on the 2nd edition by way more than I could have hoped. If you already have an old copy of this book and wonder if it is worth spending at least twice the money for this edition it is worth it.

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.

I had bought Thomas Heinz's field guide and thought it was a good book..until I bought this catalog.Owning both I find myself refering to this Catalog time and time again.This book covers every building in photos and a description,all extant ones in color,and some recently discovered works as of 2003.In fact,I like this book so much I will be buying Dr. Storrer's FLW Companion book shortly.This book is a must have for any one with an interest in Frank Lloyd Wright.

The complete catalog is a useful book that is great to take along on a road trip and find a Frank Lloyd Wright house. The book includes black and white photos of the exterior of the every listed building as well as a few interior photos. The catalog has good readability with about a two paragraph description of each building. There is no list in the beginning with each building, but rather they are listed in the back according to state with a map included. A nice sized and affordable catalog.

This is an excellent book to learn about the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. It covers his entire works in consistent format and order. The detail is excellent. Also the drawings and photographs provide a visual journey of Mr. Wrights life.

Modest price, timely delivery, VG to E condition. This series of low cost books about Frank Lloyd Wright was purchased as a guide for my granddaughter and her prospective husband as a prospectus of the future.
