About the Author:

Randell L. Makinson, Honorary AIA, is the foremost authority on Greene and Greene, having studied and written about their work for more than forty-five years. He is Director Emeritus of The Gamble House in Pasadena. This is his sixth book on the work of the Greenes. Makinson lives in Pasadena.

Thomas A. Heinz, AIA, of Evanston, Illinois, has been involved with the restoration of more than forty Frank Lloyd Wright buildings and is the author of twenty books on Wright. He is coauthor with Makinson and principal photographer for two books on Greene and Greene.

Brad Pitt, best known for his work in major American films, demonstrates here his passion for architecture, the Arts & Crafts movement, and the work of architects Greene & Greene. His enthusiasm for restoration of the Blacker House is seen in images reflecting his vision of the moods of the Blacker House as seen through his lens and his studied print compositions.
