Frank Lloyd Wright : the Western work by Dixie Legler Guerrero( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Known primarily for his iconic midwestern buildings, Frank Lloyd Wright found in the western United States a new canvas on which to apply his theories of organic architecture. There he found radically different climates, abundant but unfamiliar building materials - even a different quality of light, which he sought to incorporate into his progressive designs. Surveying twenty-three projects in all the western states outside California, Frank Lloyd Wright: The Western Work shows the profound leaps Wright made in his designs during the second half of his remarkable career."--Jacket
At home on the prairie : the houses of Purcell & Elmslie by Dixie Legler Guerrero( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The houses of William Gray Purcell and George Grant Elmsliebuilt mainly in the Midwest and Northeastare the embodiment of the early 20th century marriage of fine craftsmanship and modern technology. Masterpieces of the Prairie Style, each home was designed with the groundbreaking idea that comfort and utility could harmonize with grace and style. Characterized by open plans and site-specific designs, Purcell and Elmslie residences are tied to the land by local materials and low, spreading forms. Their signature use of nature-based ornament and brilliant color further distinguished them from their contemporaries, Frank Lloyd Wright's houses among them. In 24 residential profiles and gorgeous new photographs, Prairie Style expert Dixie Legler and photographer Christian Korab vividly bring to life the pair's enduring dedication to simple elegance and honest design. At Home on the Prairie is the deluxe treatment that this ingenious duo deserves."--Publisher's website
Picturing Wright : an album from Frank Lloyd Wright's photographer by Pedro E Guerrero( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A revised and expanded edition of this intimate photographic chronicle the world of Frank Lloyd Wright by his official photographer Pedro E. Guerrero. When twenty-two-year-old Pedro Guerrero took his short portfolio to Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West in 1939, he didn't know that he was about to start his long career by being Wright's official photographer for the next twenty years. Picturing Wright draws together 175 of Guerrero's photographs of the master architect, his homes, and his legendary workshops, including rarely seen color photographs published for the first time. The result is a moving, personal album that will delight everyone who is entranced by Wright and his work. Now back in print with several dozen images unseen in the original edition, this book comes alive with Guerrero's illuminating, often humorous stories, augmented in this edition by his widow, Dixie Guerrero. Picturing Wright remains one of the most thoroughgoing visual profiles of a man who meticulously crafted and managed his public persona, but seen here in numerous unguarded moments. The value of Guerrero's rare access extended to Wright's late works; some of the photos are the only ones documenting projects on completion, before changes made by subsequent owners
