Description

CLEARANCE – LAST COPY – GOOD, GENTLY USED CONDITION

The House Beautiful reproduces – in its entirety- a book designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and hand-printed at the tiny Auvergne Press in 1897, where only 90 copies of this exquisite artisan book were produced. Wright’s intricate drawings surround an essay by William Gannett reflecting on the importance of tasteful design for a harmonious home, and further, how a harmonious home augments spiritual, intellectual, societal, and corporeal health. This beautifully reproduced edition contains an essay by architectural historian Paul Kruty placing Wright’s book in the context of the Arts and Crafts movement in America.

This copy was used as a display copy at shows we sold at.  Interior of the book is like new.  Dust jacket has edge wear and is taped in the upper left corner (not shown in photo – ask if you want to see it).
