About this Item

Dust Jacket Condition: As New. 156 pp, Preface by Thomas S. Monaghan; Acknowledgments; Introduction by David A. Hanks; Catalogue Engries by David A. Hanks; Checklist by Sara-Ann Briggs and Caroline Stern; Appendix; Selected Bibliography by Caroline Stern and Diane Charbonneau; index. First Edition, 1989. "This book is a survey of the decorative designs by that are in the Domino's Pizza Collection in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which is now considered the most important of its type in the world. The collection chronicles Wright's designs from the 1890s to the 1950s. Illustrated with 75 color plates and 51 photographs and drawings, the book explores in detail each of the major pieces from the collection, and attempts to make known the unusual ethical difficulties that collecting Wright material presents, and how, ultimately, Wright's architectural heritage can best be preserved. In adddition to the color plates, there are b&w archival photographs and drawings that illustrate the original settings for the Wright pieces. The text not only describes the aesthetic importance of each object but also traces the history and reasons for the removal from their original locations. In addition, because significant parts of the collection were, of course, originally integral parts of an architectural setting, the book approaches the material from the point of view of preservation." from the jacket flap.
