A wonderful collection of historical photographs and timeless information on handmade houses that are unique to the artist's who built them. Each represents the hard work and creativity that their designer gave to the building process. Thirteen homes are documented, including homes by Sam Maloof and Wharton Esherick. In the back of the book, there is a list of homes that are open to the public.
Written to accompany the first nationally touring exhibition of Gustav Stickley' work, this beautiful hardcover is the latest and greatest on this wonderful artist. His creations are depicted here in a way that few books can rival. History of his life and beautiful color photography of many of his works meld in a fascinating tribute to his talent and achievements.
This elegant book is the first in-depth survey of the decorative arts of Greene and Greene… Greene scholars provide insight into why the brothers' work was so successful, and why, after their creative skills were overlooked for decades, their designs still resonate today. Superbly illustrated throughout with photographs of original interiors and exteriors, as well as preciously unpublished archival drawings and plans, A New and Native Beauty is a fitting tribute to the exquisite craftsmanship of these celebrated California architects.
Noted childrens' author Kathleen Thorne Thomsen has introduced kids to Frank Lloyd Wright and Pasadena history, and now presents the first childrens' book ever on the Greene brothers. Along with learning about the Greenes' lives through stories, photographs and architectural drawings, kids can enjoy pages of hands-on activities such as soap carving, paint mixing and designing a miniature stained glass window.
Originally published as two separate volumes by Randell L. Makinson, director emeritus of The Gamble House, these much sought-after books are now joined together in a brilliant combination of images and text. New photographs by Marvin Rand and an introduction by Reyner Banham compliment this new edition. A foundational book for any architect's library.
