The first part of this is probably of interest to only Frank Lloyd Wright's fans. But those photographs are something else.
Most people know only the exterior of Hollyhock House--cold, forbidding, monolithic; but are unfamiliar with its breathtakingly beautiful interior--in this book, displayed with some photos in vivid color. In my opinion, the interior of this building is the most beautiful of all Frank Lloyd Wright houses; a masterpiece of interior design in the Prairie Style. As an added bonus, there are some extremely rare photos of Residence B--long-demolished, it was a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece, probably unique in its use of mitred wood and corbeled posts. (I've never seen a house like it in my entire life).
The photos make this book a must-read, must-have part of your collection, suitable for display on a coffee table.
If in LA, go to see Hollyhock House and Olive Hill - you will get to see and experience one of Frank Lloyd Wright's creations. Amazing and beautiful!
