About the Artist Although the English-born Bissell started out surrounded by animals on his childhood farm, he did not start out a painter. After studying photography at the Royal College of Art in London and later moving to America, he spent a decade in the corporate world before starting his own catalog company. Soon, however, he decided to follow his heart and create art full-time. He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and regularly exhibits in museums and galleries across the United States and Europe. About the Author Carl Little is the author of many books, including Edward Hopper’s New England and Winslow Homer and the Sea, both published by Pomegranate. He is a regular contributor to art magazines and museum and gallery exhibition catalogs. Formerly the director of the Ethel H. Blum Gallery at the College of the Atlantic, Little lives with his family in Somesville, Maine.

• This is the first major monograph published on Robert Bissell, one of Pomegranate’s most popular artists.

while it is clear that artist Robert Bissell (American, b. England 1952) derives his inspiration from the animal world, his paintings are not simply portraits of bears, rabbits, and other creatures. They are allegories for the challenges and discoveries all living beings encounter on life’s journey. Bissell’s work is largely informed by the writings of the mythologist Joseph Campbell (American, 1904–1987), who held that myths from disparate cultures and eras all share fundamental structures. Bissell’s reading of Campbell’s The Hero with a Thousand Faces initiated his own journey as artist to portray “the callings we have, the quests we undertake, difficulties we share, helping hands that appear out of nowhere (it seems), and finally the elations and conclusions we all have in common.” Hero: The Paintings of Robert Bissell is organized according to the construct of Campbell’s hero’s journey. Each of the 10 chapters—from “Genesis” and “Vision” through “Crossing” and “Initiation” to “Return” and “Elixir”—presents paintings that interpret these archetypal experiences. Bissell’s grand and detailed landscapes provide Edenic stages for each scene in the journey. Carl Little’s introduction offers biographical background and explores Bissell’s process, motivations, and revelations, and the artist has supplied brief stories for many of the paintings. The path of human experience is joyfully recounted in Hero, illuminated by Bissell’s animals, who invite our contemplation as they mirror our own quests, conundrums, and resolutions.

in artist Charley Harper’s Birducopia, a wealth of birds, animals, trees, and plants are ingeniously portrayed, creating a complete environment of a woodsy park. Each creature and plant is extracted from the larger painting and silhouetted on the pages of What’s in the Woods?

The journey ends with a foldout page of the complete image, with a key identifying all the animals and plants.

American Moderns, 1910–1960: From O’Keeffe to Rockwell

Between 1910 and 1960, American society underwent tumultuous and far-reaching transformations. As the United States emerged as an international power, Americans also witnessed two world wars and the Great Depression. Urbanization and new technologies altered all aspects of modern life, and an increasingly diverse population clamored for the opportunities promised by the American dream. In response, many American artists rejected artistic traditions and sought new ways to portray contemporary life. American Moderns, 1910–1960: From O’Keeffe to Rockwell explores the myriad ways in which American artists engaged modernity. Featured are 53 paintings and 4 sculptures, ranging widely in subject matter and style, by such artists as Marsden Hartley, Max Weber, George Ault, Reginald Marsh, and Grandma Moses. The book’s introduction sets the stage for six thematic sections, each with an introductory essay—Cubist Experiments, The Still Life Revisited, Nature Essentialized, Modern Structures, Engaging Characters, and Americana—tracing the period’s dominant artistic developments. Interpretive text for each object and reproductions of comparative works provide further insight into how these artists shaped modern art.

In the aftermath of the Civil War, the American girl seemed transformed—at once more introspective and adventurous than her counterpart of the previous generation. For the first time, girls claimed the attention of genre artists, and though the culture still prized the demure female child of the past, complementary images of angel and tomboy emerged as competing visions of this new generation. Angels and Tomboys explores the diverse ways 19th-century artists portrayed girls, from the sentimental stereotype to the free-spirited individual. Works by John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, Thomas Eakins, Cecilia Beaux, Mary Cassatt, and others reveal a new, provocative psychological element not found in early Victorian portraiture, while the mischievous tomboys in Lilly Martin Spencer’s paintings and the pure angels in the works of John George Brown underscore the complexity of young girlhood. With essays that explore the artworks’ historical, social, and literary contexts, and more than 130 illustrations—including paintings, sculptures, prints, and photographs—this book is an illuminating view of what it meant to be young, female, and American in the 19th century.

Astonishingly brief, captivating, decidedly engaging, for Goreyphiles: here. Its jolly, keen language meanders neatly. One ponders, quietly, rather strange tableaux. Uses verbs winsomely. Excited, you? Zowee! What’s this all about? In the mid-1990s Edward Gorey launched a numbered series of “Thoughtful Alphabets” featuring cryptic twentysix-word stories wherein the first word begins with A, the last with Z. The first six Thoughtful Alphabets published (numbers 2, 3, 4, 10, 14, and 15) were hand-lettered posters with clip-art illustrations. Numbers XI and XVII, however, emerged as signed limited-edition books featuring—happily for us—Gorey’s own drawings. First published by The Fantod Press but long out of print, these two gems are revived in Thoughtful Alphabets: The Just Dessert and The Deadly Blotter. In each, Gorey’s inimitable drawings weave a tale of suspense and intrigue; the story proceeds as the alphabet progresses.

Emblus Fingby’s life was changed forever with the unexpected arrival of the osbick bird. The two became inseparable companions, enjoying card games, musical interludes, and sunset strolls. They took tea together, passed the time making arts and crafts, and perhaps only occasionally had disagreements. Their curious relationship came to an end only with the utmost display of loyalty. In The Osbick Bird, Edward Gorey neatly examines the uncertainties of life with his signature unsettling humor and deftly drawn illustrations. Find meaning where you will among the twinkling rhymes and crosshatched lines: Is this tender tale a primer on friendship, or possibly an examination of an artist and his muse? Though short in length, the story is sure to linger long in your imagination.

Between 1903 and 1929, Frank Lloyd Wright showered the city of Buffalo with a series of remarkable designs. These houses, commercial buildings, and unbuilt projects link the architect’s early Prairie period to his magnificent reaction to Modernism, exemplified by Fallingwater and the Johnson Wax Building. To convey this story, author Jack Quinan introduces a cast of characters linked by their association with the Larkin Company, the client that first drew Wright to New York State. Wright’s close friend Darwin D. Martin, his most fervent supporter at the Larkin Company, steered crucial jobs Wright’s way and afforded him generous loans. Only when the fortunes of the Larkin Company—and its executives—ebbed did Wright move on to new fields, in Arizona, California, and farther from home. But the traces of the Buffalo years may be seen in much of his subsequent work. State University of New York at Buffalo distinguished service professor Jack Quinan brings to light one of the most significant periods of Wright’s long career. With an introductory essay, insightful entries discussing each building, and more than 125 historical and contemporary photographs and architectural plans and drawings, Frank Lloyd Wright’s Buffalo Venture is the first exhaustive survey of Wright’s Buffalo projects, expertly chronicling a little-known chapter in architectural history.

Edward Hopper (1882–1967), one of the 20th century’s most important American painters, spent nearly every summer of his prolific career in New England—a region with coastal views, mansard-roofed houses, and a still light that inspired many of his greatest works. This comprehensive collection presents some of Hopper’s finest paintings of New England, providing a guide to the places that resonated so deeply with the artist throughout his career. Carl Little’s essay examines the crucial role New England played in Hopper’s development and considers the full range of his work devoted to this subject—from his scenes of Gloucester’s sail-filled harbors and sunlit streets to his monumental lighthouse paintings, which have become icons of American art.

Artistic San Francisco

Edward Hopper resided in the Washington Square area of New York City from 1905 until his death, pursuing the visual essence of Gotham in various media. He embraced the architecture of the great city and gave us stark yet intimate interpretations of urban existence that are subdued masterpieces of American art. This collection of paintings includes such icons as Automat, Early Sunday Morning, Chop Suey, and Nighthawks and demonstrates Hopper’s ability to make emptiness full, silence articulate, plainness mysterious, and tawdriness noble.

Winslow Homer (1836–1910) devoted much of his life to a study of the ocean and the people whose lives were intertwined with it. Winslow Homer and the Sea embraces the full range of Homer’s coastal subjects, which began with seashore vignettes drawn at the start of his career for the illustrated journals of the day and ended with powerful Maine seascapes and luminous Caribbean watercolors. Here are more than 30 of the artist’s most powerful works, from romantic scenes of figures on the beach to his depictions of the fury and terror of coastal storms.

San Francisco is known for its picturesque neighborhoods and attractions—from Chinatown to the Golden Gate Bridge. But even before these iconic symbols took shape, the city’s rugged topography and fog-shrouded coast served as a beacon for artists. Throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, artists continued their love affair with the “City by the Bay,” creating an enduring portrait of San Francisco via paintings, drawings, photographs, and prints. Artistic San Francisco features more than 50 artworks and includes an introductory essay by James A. Ganz, curator of the Achenbach Foundation for Graphic Arts of the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, exploring the artistic roots of this dynamic region.

Although it had been home to indigenous people for centuries, the Grand Canyon was virtually unknown to most Americans in 1869, when John Wesley Powell became the first person to travel the canyon’s full length by boat. An inspired Powell introduced the canyon to landscape artist Thomas Moran, who brilliantly portrayed its grandeur for a stunned public. Ed Mell, Clark Hulings, Wilson Hurley, Frank Mason, P. A. Nisbet, Bruce Aiken, and Earl Carpenter are among the contemporary painters represented in this gorgeously illustrated overview of 150 years of artistic responses to America’s most famous natural wonder. Gustave Baumann (American, b. Germany, 1881–1971) moved to Santa Fe in 1918 and spent the rest of his life there, producing a wealth of woodblock prints depicting the southwestern landscape and its people.

A master of watercolor, Charles E. Burchfield (1893–1967) achieved unprecedented effects in the medium while capturing the “great epic poetry of American life.” An artist with a deep love of nature, he was especially fascinated by the change of seasons; his nature portraits pulsate with discovery and transformation. In Charles Burchfield’s Seasons, Guy Davenport discusses the artist’s journals and his relationship to music, literature, and Modernism, depicting him as a masterful, multifaceted painter who strove to capture the essence of all earthly beauty.

Wild Gardens publishes for the first time a broad collection of floral paintings by New York painter Robert Kushner (b. 1949), many of the works painted directly on antique Japanese screens and sliding doors. An essay by the artist discusses his philosophical reasons for painting on these nontraditional surfaces and explains his working methods and the technical issues involved in restoration, gilding, and composition. This book’s elegant reproductions and sharply framed essays offer the reader vivid insight into Kushner’s eloquent world of visual opulence.

Lenore Tawney (1907–2007) is recognized as one of the leading fiber artists of the 20th century; she helped transform weaving into a new form of visual art. From the 1960s on, she also created whimsical and ingenious postcard collages. Tawney’s dynamic cards, of regulation size, were sent through the mail devoid of any protective covering—only in rare instances were instructions for special treatment, such as hand stamping, included—to friends and family members. The cards arrived in excellent condition, a testimonial to the postal workers’ appreciation of the artist’s gifts. Most of the collages were made entirely of paper: photographs, newspaper clippings, magazine ads, musical scores, illustrations from books, and Tawney’s own drawings.

Meinrad Craighead (b. 1936) has led a deeply intuitive life. Raised Catholic, she spent 14 years as a Benedictine nun at Stanbrook Abbey in England, but returned to the United States to knit together the southwestern Native American spiritual traditions and her Catholic roots: she worships both Crow Mother and the Madonna. This retrospective presents Craighead’s extensive body of work from the 1960s through 2001. Essays by Rosemary Davies, who first met Craighead at Stan-brook Abbey; Virginia Beane Rutter, a Jungian analyst and author; and Eugenia Parry, an art historian and author, discuss Craighead’s work with subtlety and insight.

SUSAN SEDDON BOULET Susan Seddon Boulet: The Goddess Paintings Michael Babcock 128 pp., 9 x 12 in. 59 color reproductions Smyth-sewn paperbound, with flaps A717  ISBN 978-1-56640-957-5 $29.95 US ($34.95 Canada)

This book brings together the magnificent goddess paintings of Susan Seddon Boulet (American, 1941–1997) and insightful text by Michael Babcock, a San Francisco Bay Area writer who has studied mythology extensively. Here, set against a backdrop of history, mythology, and psychology, Ishtar, Psyche, Athena, Gaia, and 41 other goddesses come to vibrant life. Together, Boulet’s paintings and Babcock’s writing breathe new life into these universal symbols of the dynamic feminine qualities (present in both women and men, of course), bringing into focus the goddesses’ relevance in the modern world.

Charles Addams (1912–1988) first created Morticia, Lurch, and The Thing in a cartoon published in a 1938 issue of The New Yorker. Other characters were born and developed over the next 26 years, before the cheerfully creepy clan debuted on ABC television in 1964 and later on the big screen. The Addams Family: An Evilution is the first book to trace this history, presenting more than 200 cartoons created by Addams; many have never been published before. Text by H. Kevin Miserocchi traces each character’s evolution, while Addams’s own incisive character descriptions introduce each chapter.

Susan Seddon Boulet’s subtle colors and fusion of forms reflect the magical and spiritual powers of shamans. Boulet initiated a style very much her own in these paintings that focus on the spiritual well-being of humankind. This book definitively reveals the depth of vision and technique of a powerful artist. Excerpts from Native American ceremonies, chants, and songs are interspersed throughout Shaman, and a brief introduction looks at the origins and function of shamanism.

Scottish painter John Duncan (1866–1945) began with paintings based on Arthurian legend and then applied himself to Celtic myths and legends. While the Symbolist movement was probably his most important source of inspiration, his paintings were imbued with the spirit of the Italian Renaissance, and he spent much of his life experimenting with various formulas for tempera in order to obtain the precise density of color and smoothness of surface that characterize his work. John Kemplay outlines Duncan’s technical, intellectual, and spiritual development as an artist and his close association with Patrick Geddes, the botanist and socialist devoted to a renaissance of Celtic art.

Adolphe-William Bouguereau (French, 1825–1905) created timeless works of sensual, emotional, and intellectual appeal. Educated at the École des beaux-arts in Paris, he became a highly sought-after portraitist whose works won medals in various international exhibitions. In Bouguereau, Fronia E. Wissman offers astute and illuminating insights into the art, career, and family life of this great artist—whose beautiful paintings of a better, purer time and place continue to find favor with contemporary viewers.

From Process to Print celebrates the etchings, aquatints, collagraphs, photo projections, lithographs, and screenprints of one of America’s most important artists. More than 75 color reproductions demonstrate Bearden’s printmaking process as he worked and reworked particular images, themes, and techniques. His thinking and approaches were shaped through collaborations with master printmakers, especially Robert Blackburn, as he wove into his images a rich tapestry of literary, biblical, mythological, popularculture, and Western and non-Western themes informed by his African American cultural experiences. The essay and interviews thoroughly examine Bearden’s graphic output and offer valuable insights into the artist’s methods.

Romare Bearden (1911–1988) is among the preeminent American artists of the 20th century. Best known for his collages, Bearden also painted oils and watercolors, created mosaic murals, and designed books, record album covers, and stage sets. Frank Stewart met Bearden in 1975 while filming the documentary Two Centuries of Black American Art. Their Southern backgrounds and mutual interest in art and music—especially jazz—formed the foundation for an extraordinary professional and personal relationship. In this book, Stewart offers a pictorial treasure trove of biographical information about Bearden. Curator Ruth Fine’s introduction provides special insight into the wonderful friendship between the two men.

As an artist, David C. Driskell has explored nature and culture, African and African American heritage, spirituality, family, and sociopolitics. As a scholar and educator, he has worked tirelessly to establish the study of African American art within the canon of American art scholarship. In this comprehensive monograph, author and art historian Julie L. McGee traces Driskell’s personal, artistic, and scholarly journeys, lending context to his participation in and influence over pivotal movements in 20th-century American art and society.

The history of the struggle for freedom from slavery cannot be told too many times. It is a vital component of American life, a key to our culture. In Holston’s magnificent suite of images, the story is told deeply and compellingly. These richly hued paintings contrast the brutal ugliness of slavery with the overwhelming courage of those who survived it, escaped it, and worked to end it. Holston portrays the human capacity for hope with heartfelt— but measured—joy. Cheryl LaRoche’s essay provides a historical backdrop, while Barbara Stephanic’s text places Holston’s art in the context of other artists working at the same time.

Charles White (1918–1979) applied vision and brilliance in portraying the African American community. With pencil and brush, in black and white and in color, he captured not only the poverty, strife, and despair of black people but also their strength of community, their joy in enlightenment, and the tenderness they experienced in kinship. His canvases, woodcuts, monumental drawings, and murals convey his strong social consciousness and the inherent dignity of his subjects. Although White’s works are in the collections of major museums, including the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Art Institute of Chicago, his place in the annals of art history has never been fully realized. This book is a major step toward ensuring the legacy of this seminal artist.

One of America’s most important assemblage artists, Betye Saar (b. 1926) makes visual magic from such ingredients as gloves, old photographs and wallpaper, and scraps of ribbon and lace. She draws her imagery from the social and political movements, spiritual systems, and visual cultures around her, blending black aesthetics, feminist art, African art, and Latino art with modern and postmodern movements, popular culture, and personal memories. Her reinterpretations document and challenge our notions of family, race, gender, and faith. This book examines the phases of Saar’s career and charts the themes that tie her oeuvre into a thoughtful and cohesive whole.

The artistic range of Keith Morrison (b. 1942) covers both abstraction and figuration. Jamaican born, he was exposed to both traditional art and the global art community; in the United States he studied figure drawing, painting, and printmaking at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, basing his style of abstraction on geometric forms, music, and geography. Subsequently influenced by political events, emotionally charged situations, and other cultures, he turned to figurative art, becoming “a painterly storyteller.” Through selected paintings and informed text, Renée Ater introduces us to this master artist.

Portraitist, muralist, figurative and abstract painter, Charles Alston (1907– 1977) was an artist of singular talent and broad vision, as well as a dedicated teacher. Author Alvia J. Wardlaw writes that Alston was “a pioneer who ventured fearlessly into the foreign territory of mainstream art, all the while gathering information for those who followed him. His generosity was evident, and his career-long desire to teach reflected his determination to change the art world from the inside.” This book pays tribute to a seminal artist whose accomplishments are extraordinary in scope and profound in their influence.

The story of Faith Ringgold (b. 1930)—activist, author, academician—is an uplifting look at a progressive artist who overcame discrimination and triumphed in American art. An accomplished painter, sculptor, printmaker, and art quilter, she has never abandoned her goal of advancing the human dignity and empowerment of her fellow African Americans while tirelessly fighting discrimination. Ringgold has exhibited worldwide, and her works are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Studio Museum in Harlem, among many others. Faith Ringgold explores the artist’s political paintings and posters; textile work, including masks, dolls, and thangkas; and story quilts. 16

Archibald J. Motley Jr. (1891–1981) devoted his career to raising awareness and appreciation of African American culture among all races and to promoting greater understanding of the fine arts among blacks. Here art historian Amy M. Mooney examines Motley’s work during his most productive years— the 1920s through the 1940s—and chronicles his contributions to the American art scene. Drawing on Motley’s prodigious paintings and eloquent writings, his unpublished paintings and sketches, and taped interviews, she provides an intimate look at a master chronicler of the dreams, tastes, and urban realities of his day.

Best known for her “sophisticated naïve” style, Margo Humphrey (b. 1942) transforms personal experiences into narratives that speak to the human spirit. Bold colors and flat planes intertwine, using the artist’s unique iconography to address issues of race, gender, spirituality, and relationships. Adrienne L. Childs presents this work as part autobiography and part fantasy: everyday objects become recurring symbols as, for instance, a plate of yams stands for nourishment or survival. Whether celebrating her childhood or confronting her personal fears, Humphrey’s artwork navigates her life story to convey hope, possibility, and love.

In the paintings of Hughie Lee-Smith (1915–1999), barren landscapes, lone figures, and contrasting juxtapositions elicit many questions and reflections. “I cannot begin to project the meaning of my work in specific terms,” Lee-Smith said, “for these paintings, at their best, are multifaceted visual complexes whose many aspects are pregnant with as many disparate meanings as there are viewers.” Leslie King-Hammond connects a Depression-era childhood to the mature artist’s vision.

Between 1956 and 1959 a group of artists living in the town of Cape Dorset, in Canada’s far north, created the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative, laying the groundwork for a legendary printmaking tradition. Today the annual release of Cape Dorset prints, produced by the group’s Kinngait Studios, is eagerly anticipated by collectors around the world. Cape Dorset Prints: A Retrospective is the first book to tell the full story of this printmaking community.

Between Heaven and Earth presents a two-page spread for each of the Torah’s sections, or parashah; Ilene Winn-Lederer’s bold and beautiful illustrations incorporate transcriptions of Hebrew and English passages. The illuminated Torah is followed by a section titled “AfterImages: Artist’s Notes,” in which Winn-Lederer details the biblical story, symbols, and personal reflections that guided each illustration. She conveys her extensive knowledge of the Torah clearly and accessibly, offering her interpretations against a scholarly backdrop.

Japanese artist Kamisaka Sekka (1866–1942) flourished during the vibrant Meiji era. He led a revival of the Rinpa style and was a progenitor of modern design in Japan, creating imaginative, innovative imagery. Chosen for this book are the complete sets of prints from three of his most popular print series: All Kinds of Things (Chigusa), All Kinds of Butterflies (Cho-senshu), and Things from Many Worlds (Momoyogusa). The 175 lush reproductions make this a must have for any admirer of Asian art prints. An introductory essay authored by Andreas Marks, director and chief curator at the Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture, secures this seminal artist’s legacy as one of the most important designers of the early 20th century.

The strictest and purest of poetic forms, the Japanese haiku contains in its 17 sound characters (on) a reference to a season as well as a distinct pause or interruption. Cherry blossoms and swallows might refer to spring; red maple leaves and deer usually imply autumn. These seasonal allusions emphasize the essence of haiku: nature and its ephemeral beauty. Graceful and evocative, the haiku featured here were composed by the renowned Japanese haiku masters of the past 400 years. Rendered in English with Japanese calligraphy and transliterations, each is paired with an exquisite 18th- or 19thcentury painting or print, or a 20th-century shin hanga woodcut, from the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, British Columbia.

The Days of the Dead offers a remarkable glimpse into Mexico’s traditional holiday honoring departed ancestors, friends, and family. Moving photographs of these colorful celebrations give new insight into ideas once common in Mexico, yet today unfamiliar to many. Each aspect of the multiday festival is carefully explored, from the journey to the cemeteries to spruce up neglected grave sites through the lively festivities in which townspeople take to the streets for a peaceful vigil to the moment when friends and families crowd the cemeteries to await the arrival of their loved ones.

In 2007 a collection surfaced of more than 130 works on paper by Martín Ramírez (Mexican, 1895–1963), all were created in the early 1960s shortly before his death. These last works shine new light on an artist now revered as one of the selftaught masters of the 20th century. Diagnosed with mental illness soon after his arrival in California from Mexico, Ramírez spent the second half of his life in mental institutions. Ramírez’s work illuminates the struggle of an artist trapped between two worlds, blending memories of Mexico with the experience of poverty and alienation in America.

The Japanese woodblock printmaking movement known as shin hanga (new prints) grew and flourished thanks to the dedication of Watanabe Shozaburo (1885–1962), who undertook the mission of educating his countrymen about the tradition and encouraged them to collect woodblock prints. Eventually the shin hanga movement became so strong that not even the great earthquake of 1923 could stop it. Works by Yoshida Hiroshi, Tsuchiya Koitsu, and many other shin hanga masters illustrate this story of an art movement that proliferated during a 50-year period beginning just after the turn of the 20th century.

During the brief Meiji period, Japan underwent a quite astonishing metamorphosis from feudal state to modern industrial and military power. The national policy of isolationism, sakoku, initiated in 1639, was abruptly challenged in 1853 when Commodore Matthew C. Perry sailed into Tokyo Bay with four awe-inspiring iron vessels, locally known as “black ships.” Forced into trade treaties, the Japanese state rushed to modernize under the enlightened leadership of Emperor Meiji. The popular woodblock prints of the Meiji period were snapshots of a modern society in the making. All reproductions are from the collection of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria.

miscellany Utagawa Kuniyoshi: The Sixty-nine Stations of the Kisokaido-

Originally published in 1852 and 1853, The Sixty-nine Stations of the Kisokaido- is a richly entertaining series of woodblock prints created by master artist Utagawa Kuniyoshi (Japanese, 1797–1861). The 72 finely executed prints include one for each resting point along the well-traveled Kisokaido- (Kiso Road)—a historic route stretching from Edo (modern Tokyo) to Kyoto—plus views of the two endpoint cities and an additional series title page. Kuniyoshi never traveled the mountainous Kisokaido-, but he drew from historic events, Kabuki plays, popular legends, and classical literature to illustrate his vision of the towns and stations along the road.

Here is the exciting and true tale of the famous vendetta of the 47 Ronin, the samurai left masterless after their leader, Asano Naganori, was forced by the court official Kira to commit seppuku (ritual suicide). For two years the men plotted their vengeance. In due course, thanks to cunning and bravery, they succeeded, killing 16 of Kira’s men, wounding 22, and cutting off Kira’s head, which they bore to their lord’s grave. The ronin surrendered and subsequently committed seppuku; they are buried side by side near their master’s tomb, in what is now Tokyo.

Infusing her sensibility into every detail—from the Limoges vases in the chintz bedroom to the crystal-trimmed candelabra in the salon— Carrie Walter Stettheimer (American, 1869–1944) wove together the fashion and style of New York’s high society in the early 20th century to create one of the finest dollhouses in the world. Stettheimer worked on the 12-room dollhouse for nearly two decades, creating many of the furnishings and decorations by hand. Styles of decoration vary from room to room, yet the wallpapers, furniture, and fixtures are all characteristic of the period following World War I. The result is a magnificent work of art, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of New York.

This compact, colorful book coherently dissects all sorts of confounding optical illusions, explaining how they work, how to create them, and how to toy with them to your heart’s content. With accessible yet fascinating text and 37 projects to work with, this intriguing book is appropriate for graphic designers, teachers, artists, and anyone who enjoys contemplating how the mind works and how the eye sees. The sturdy hardcover binding lies flat for convenient scanning of the basic shapes used in the drawing projects, and the directions—accompanied by color illustrations—are clear and easy to follow.

Cats celebrate Christmas. They marvel at Christmas trees, attack gift wrap, give presents (generally deceased rodents), and eat too much. This behavior was shrewdly documented by B. Kliban, the closest man to a cat anyone has ever encountered. In this volume, his dozens of Yuletide cat cartoons and paintings have been collected for a perfectly pleasing Christmastime diversion. Never-before-published cat lyrics adapted to well-known Christmas carols are included, researched and collected by Professor Winkie B. Earmites. “Hark the Hungry Kittens Sing,” “We Wish You a Mousie Christmas” (attributed to Salmon D. Fishdie), and “Kittens We Have Heard on High” are just a few of the rousing standards.

Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer

2nd printing

Floating Worlds is the memoir of an extraordinary relationship: Edward Gorey and Peter Neumeyer met in the summer of 1968 when they were contracted to work together on a children’s story. Their subsequent friendship was fueled by a wealth of letters and postcards that sped between the two men through the fall of 1969. Published here for the first time, those letters are Edited by Peter F. Neumeyer remarkable for their quantity and content; both men were erudite, voracious 256 pp., 63/4 x 83/4 in. 75 letters, 38 illustrated envelopes, more readers with wide-ranging interests, and they sent each other many volumes. The letters also paint an intimate portrait of Edward Gorey. His gentleness, than 60 postcards and illustrations humility, brilliance, and distinctive humor shine in each letter, and his deft Smyth-sewn casebound, with jacket artistic hand is evident on the decorated envelopes addressed to Neumeyer, A197  ISBN 978-0-7649-5947-9 38 of which are reproduced here. Peter Neumeyer’s acumen and compassion, $35.00 US ($38.95 Canada) expressed in his discerning, often provocative missives, reveal him to be an ideal creative and intellectual ally for Gorey.

The delightful tales and theatrical drawings of Edward Gorey reflect a special kind of genius for what is left unwritten and unseen. In Gorey’s vaguely Victorian world of well-tended gardens and opulent estates, smokebelching factories and fog-shrouded streets, nothing seems certain or quite as it should be. Elegant Enigmas offers more than 175 reproductions, including samples from Gorey’s books, illustrations produced for other writers, theatrical sets and costume designs, and a wealth of sketches, typewritten manuscripts, doodles, and musings.

Our environments reveal much about who we are. That was certainly the case with Edward Gorey. His house in Yarmouthport, Massachusetts, on Cape Cod, was filled with his multifarious collections of objects, from books and bottles to finials and rings, stuffed animals and rocks. He arranged his clutter in an order that made sense only to him. In Elephant House; or, The Home of Edward Gorey, Kevin McDermott—a friend of Gorey’s who performed in some of the artist’s theater productions—elegantly documents in rich duotone and color photographs this chockablock house, room by room, just as Gorey left it when he died in April 2000.

The Black Doll, a little-known, never-produced screenplay by Edward Gorey, dishes up a rambunctious romp of a plot featuring vile villains, wicked women, sinister socialites, and a horrified heroine. It’s the stuff of many a silent melodrama but imbued with classic Gorey convolutions. Written in 1973 and originally published in Scenario magazine in 1998, The Black Doll has been missing from most Gorey libraries until now.

Fetching young Hamish prefers life in the great outdoors; when he isn’t traipsing about, he whiles away his time writing in an ever-growing diary. But then he mistakenly opens an envelope. Sudden wealth leads Hamish to raising lions, but his newfound fame complicates his heretofore carefree existence . . . With charming, distinctive pen-and-ink drawings coupled with characteristically succinct text, Edward Gorey leads us—as only he can do—through the mysterious circumstances that envelop Hamish on a long journey that begins with a single misstep. First published in 1973 and long out of print, The Lost Lions is an ever-popular Gorey classic.

A happy, naive family enters the Evil Garden (free admission!) to spend a sunny afternoon in its inviting landscape, lush with exotic trees and flowers. They soon realize their mistake, as harrowing sounds and evidence of foul play emerge. When humongous hairy bugs, famished carnivorous plants, ferocious fruit-guarding bears, and a sinister strangling snake appear, the family’s misgivings turn to panic—but where’s the exit? Edward Gorey leads us through this nefarious garden with a light step. His unmistakable drawings paired with engaging couplets produce giggles, not gasps. Perhaps The Evil Garden is a morality tale; perhaps it’s simply an enigmatic entertainment. Whatever the interpretation, it’s a prime example of the iconic storytelling genius that is Edward Gorey.

2nd printing

Twenty-six curious creatures—from the fastidious Ampoo to the world’s one and only Zote—fill the pages of The Utter Zoo, an alphabet from the untamed imagination of Edward Gorey. The Boggerslosh, the Crunk, and the Dawbis; the Ippagoggy, the Jelbislup, and the Kwongdzu; the Scrug, the Twibbit, and the Ulp—each is described in Gorey’s inimitable rhyming couplets.

Miss D. Awdrey-Gore, renowned 97-year-old writer of detective stories, is found murdered; then a mysterious hidden packet is discovered. Addressed to her publisher, it contains notes and drawings related to a literary work in progress. The contents are (or appear to be) clues about Awdrey-Gore’s demise. Edward Gorey takes us on a rollicking ride in this merry murder mystery, but whether or not the killer is revealed is open to speculation.

The Sopping Thursday Edward Gorey 64 pp., 81/2 x 61/2 in. 30 gray-and-black illustrations Smyth-sewn casebound, with jacket A147  ISBN 978-0-7649-4469-7 $14.95 US ($16.95 Canada)

An umbrella is missing. A man is distressed. A thief scampers over rooftops. A child is in danger. A harangued salesclerk weeps. A dog saves the day. The intriguing story of The Sopping Thursday is unlike any other Edward Gorey book, both because of its unique gray-andblack illustrations and because it has a happy ending (if one is to dismiss any worry about the child featured in the last frame). In just 30 images and 30 short lines of text, Gorey manages to create a complex tableau of characters and a plot worthy of film noir.

The Blue Aspic Edward Gorey 64 pp., 7 x 61/4 in. 30 black-and-white illustrations Smyth-sewn casebound, with jacket A169  ISBN 978-0-7649-5062-9 $14.95 US ($18.95 Canada)

Edward Gorey’s first miniature book, The Eclectic Abecedarium is an illustrated adventure through the English alphabet, accompanied by rhyming couplets penned by Gorey, who described his creations as “literary nonsense.” Inspired by popular moral primers for children, Gorey created an updated version of Isaac Watts’s alphabetic aphorisms. Part sweet songs of unseen birds and part cautionary tales, this abecedarium fully lives up to the epithet “eclectic.”

Ortenzia Caviglia is an undiscovered opera understudy whose lucky break results from the mysterious murder of the reigning diva. Upon hearing her sing, Jasper Ankle becomes her deepest admirer, undaunted by perilous weather and abject poverty in his quest to hear her sing. As Ortenzia’s star rises, Jasper sinks further into despair, until performer and fan collide in true Edward Gorey fashion. Exquisitely illustrated with the artist’s signature pen-and-ink crosshatching, The Blue Aspic is a heartwrenching and oddly hilarious tale of unrequited love and the dangers of celebrity.

2nd printing The Remembered Visit: A Story Taken from Life Edward Gorey 64 pp., 7 x 61/4 in. 30 black-and-white illustrations Smyth-sewn casebound, with jacket A170  ISBN 978-0-7649-5063-6 $14.95 US ($18.95 Canada)

On a long trip abroad, Gorey’s young Drusilla vainly tries to appreciate the museums, rich food, and architectural wonders that delight her parents. But then Miss Skrim-Pshaw takes her for tea with Mr Crague, a sockless, elderly man with a notable past, and a brilliant world is spread before Drusilla’s imagination as the old friends chat. Years later, Drusilla experiences a mournful epiphany. The Remembered Visit, originally published in 1965, is marked by a wistful purity quite unique in Gorey’s oeuvre.

2nd printing The Twelve Terrors of Christmas John Updike Drawings by Edward Gorey 32 pp., 41/4 x 53/4 in.

Two American masters team up to tickle your funny bone in this little stocking stuffer. Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist John Updike wrote the text, which, among other holiday musings, questions the motives of Santa Claus: “A man of no plausible address, with no apparent source for his considerable wealth, comes down the chimney after midnight while decent, law-abiding citizens are snug in their beds—is this not, at the least, cause for alarm?” And Updike’s jaundiced take on Christmas is perfectly complemented by the darkly humorous drawings of Edward Gorey, whose trademark anxious naifs are here beset by ubiquitous yuletide misfortune. Ho-ho-ouch!

The Gilded Bat Edward Gorey 64 pp., 7 x 61/4 in. 30 black-and-white illustrations Smyth-sewn casebound, with jacket A143  ISBN 978-0-7649-4193-1 $14.95 US ($18.95 Canada)

In this tale, Maudie, a girl given to staring at dead birds, is transformed into Mirella, a captivating prima ballerina. But she occupies the peak of fame for only a moment before an unexpected and dreadful demise. Edward Gorey’s exquisitely crafted backdrops—chilly rehearsal rooms, grand stages, stark apartments—set the tone for this lonely drama starring a slightly peculiar heroine.

The Doubtful Guest, Amy and Basil Gashlycrumb, Dracula and Lucy, Jumblies, the Great Veiled Bear—this curious cast of characters joins a slew of other peculiar people and beasts in this big beauty of a book. Thirty large-format reproductions display Edward Gorey’s signature crosshatched drawings, elegant watercolors, and endless wit—all perfect for framing, or to treasure as a collection.

This mournful tale of petite Charlotte Sophia’s catastrophic short life is classic Gorey. Orphaned, the poor child is bullied by schoolmates and ruffians alike, surviving only by the skin of her baby teeth. Even her doll suffers a gruesome end. The Hapless Child is widely regarded as one of Gorey’s best books: you will enjoy weeping for Charlotte Sophia again . . . and again, and again.

This two-book boxed set introduces us to Donald, a little boy who has little adventures that to him are very big indeed. In Donald and the . . . , Donald finds a worm. His mother lets him keep it in a jar, but soon the worm disappears. Donald forgets about his new pet while he recuperates from a short illness. When he’s better, he finds in the jar something that takes him by surprise. In Donald Has a Difficulty, Donald’s mother nurses him through an injury, and Donald learns what hurts and what doesn’t—and that takes him by surprise, too. This collaboration between Peter F. Neumeyer (b. 1929) and Edward St. John Gorey (1925–2000), along with Why We Have Day and Night (see below), is documented in Floating Worlds: The Letters of Edward Gorey and Peter F. Neumeyer (page 22). The Treehorn Trilogy contains three well-loved stories chronicling the trials of Treehorn, a young boy with a talent for getting into and out of (and sometimes right back into) unusual situations. The Shrinking of Treehorn finds him growing down instead of growing up; in Treehorn’s Treasure, he puts a creative spin on an adage spoken by his father; and a genie adds some befuddlement to the boy’s birthday in Treehorn’s Wish. In these tales—each written by Florence Parry Heide and illustrated by Edward Gorey—Treehorn’s quandaries are complicated by preoccupied adults, his fickle friend Moshie, and, of course, comic books, coupons, and cereal box tops.

In this curious tale, four children, accompanied by their faithful cat, stumble around in the dark and ask, “What’s going on when the lights go out?” A lot of imagination and a little bit of science (cue a flashlight and an orange) inspire a creative conclusion. To these young minds, why we have day and night is a big question that can only be answered by one (very hungry) little bug.

The Wuggly Ump Edward Gorey 32 pp., 6 x 5 in. 14 color illustrations Smyth-sewn casebound, with jacket A142  ISBN 978-0-7649-4192-4 $12.95 US ($15.95 Canada)

Edward Gorey recounts the fate of three wholesome children whose happy days weaving chains of flowers are cut short when the terrifying Wuggly Ump hurtles from its den in search of tasty tots. Set to deceptively pleasant rhymes, this mildly unsettling cautionary tale has delighted legions of Gorey fans since its original publication in 1963.

As recounted by Edward Lear, the dean of nonsense verse, the infinitely endearing and always happy Jumblies set sail over rough seas in a sieve—and managed to reach a paradisiacal isle. Edward Gorey first heard Lear’s poem when he was a child; as a grown-up artist, it occurred to him he might illustrate it. The result, a joint project by two of the Anglophone world’s most whimsical Edwards, is poetic perfection.

The Dong with a Luminous Nose Text by Edward Lear Illustrations by Edward Gorey 48 pp., 81/2 x 6 in. 22 black-and-white illustrations Smyth-sewn casebound, with jacket A183  ISBN 978-0-7649-5427-6 $14.95 US ($17.95 Canada)

The saga of the happy-go-lucky Jumblies continues in this charming love story-poem, penned by Edward Lear and illustrated by Edward Gorey. While the Jumblies took a breather from their long sea voyage, a passionate relationship was born between a Jumbly girl and the Dong. The heroic and lovesick Dong can’t help but win our hearts with that protuberant and luminous proboscis of his.

Edward Gorey’s charming drawings for three classic children’s stories are collected in this compact volume, accompanied with new text by James Donnelly. Little Red Riding Hood, Jack the Giant-Killer, and Rumpelstiltskin have never before been recounted with the relish and wit that distinguish this version.

Donnelly’s text is breezy and fun to read; many passages will provoke howling delight in both children and adults.

Marian Anderson, a black contralto, was one of the most renowned singers of the 20th century—an achievement all the more remarkable in a time of flagrant racial discrimination. Barred from performing at Constitution Hall in Washington, DC, in 1939, she instead performed in front of the Lincoln Memorial, creating a defining moment in American history. Anderson was also a civic champion, establishing a scholarship fund so that emerging singers needing financial assistance could dare—as she did—to realize their dreams.

Distinguished by self-assurance, a disarming wit, and a spirit that welcomed adventure, Amelia Earhart made aviation history with daring feats, record-setting journeys, and her refusal to accept the prevailing view that women were not meant to pilot airplanes. Amelia Earhart explores the life of this courageous flier, who exemplified daily her own principle that “to live fully requires courage to take some risks.”

Aimee Hess A110  ISBN 0-7649-3544-5

An illness in early childhood left Helen Keller deaf and blind, but at age six her bleak existence changed profoundly: Anne Sullivan began teaching her to communicate through “finger-spelling.” The profoundly isolated, temperamental child became a voracious learner and embraced the world, dedicating her life to easing the suffering of others. This book examines Keller’s fascinating life and accomplishments; a section is devoted to Sullivan and her teaching methods.

Encouraged at an early age to pursue her passion, Margaret Mead studied anthropology under Franz Boas at New York’s Barnard College; she was just 23 when, as a doctoral candidate, she traveled alone to Samoa to begin her first foreign fieldwork. Over the next 40 years Mead became one of the world’s preeminent and most outspoken anthropologists. This book traces Mead’s life and the controversies that often swirled around her.

Dining with cannibals in Sumatra, skiing solo to the South Pole—history is replete with tales of men engaging in such derring-do. But these and other bold endeavors have also been undertaken by women. Profiled here are numerous women from the past two centuries who have sought out high adventure, among them globetrotting travel writer Ida Pfeiffer, polar explorer Louise Boyd, mountaineer Fanny Bullock Workman, and mountain-climbing archaeologist Dr. Constanza Ceruti.

Women of the Civil Rights Movement

A135  ISBN 978-0-7649-3876-4

Linda Barrett Osborne

For more than 200 years American women have challenged injustice and chauvinism, going into workhouses, taverns, and the halls of government to campaign for charity, temperance, peace, and, more recently, sexual equality. This book connects the stories of two dozen women who defied expectations—speaking out, holding high office, leading strikes—and whose personal lives were often as inspiring as their public deeds.

Women of the Civil War Michelle A. Krowl A112  ISBN 0-7649-3546-1

Women of the Civil War celebrates women on both sides of the conflict whose courage brought them into the fray, whether as soldiers, battlefield nurses, or spies. The book recalls renowned historical figures such as Clara Barton and Harriet Tubman, along with lesser-known heroines such as Dr. Mary E. Walker, who tended soldiers and civilians during the war, and the Daughters of the Regiment, who accompanied their husbands to battle.

From Brown v. Board of Education to the 1963 March on Washington, women were critical to every aspect of the fight to end legal segregation in the United States. Women of the Civil Rights Movement tells the story of the women who made it happen: Rosa Parks, Jo Ann Gibson Robinson, Ella Baker, Daisy Bates, Diane Nash, and others who demonstrated, marched, and went to jail for their beliefs.

Women of the Suffrage Movement Janice E. Ruth and Evelyn Sinclair A113  ISBN 0-7649-3547-X

Generations of individuals struggled to win national suffrage for women. From a meeting in Seneca Falls in 1848 until ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, the suffrage fight grew into the largest reform movement in American history. This book chronicles the history of the struggle and includes five profiles highlighting family ties and friendships among suffragists.

One reason Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s textile designs are not widely known— unlike his architecture, furniture, and watercolors—is that few of his fabrics can now be bought. Fortunately, many of his original drawings, designed between 1915 and 1923, have survived in the Hunterian Art Gallery at Glasgow University, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the British Museum. In this book, Roger Billcliffe—an expert on Scottish art and on Mackintosh in particular—shows that with the furniture and interior designs made after 1915, the textile designs form a whole new style for Mackintosh, looking forward to much of the work shown at the great Paris exhibition of decorative arts of 1925.

2nd printing In the late 19th century Glasgow businesswoman Catherine (Kate) Cranston became acquainted with a young architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, who would become one of the Western world’s most renowned designers. Cranston commissioned Mackintosh to design tea rooms where customers could spend convivial time during the day (temperance was in force at the time). For two decades, Mackintosh worked on the rooms; when completed, they became internationally famous, and this book tells their story.

C. F. A. Voysey: Architect, Designer, Individualist

Like other Arts and Crafts practitioners, C. F. A. Voysey (English, 1857– 1941) believed that no aspect of a house was too small to merit the architect’s attention. Here, the architect’s entire body of work is represented, from his architectural designs for cottage houses to his interior designs for furniture, metalwork, wall coverings, and textiles. The book explores the life and work of this pivotal figure in British architecture and design through rare period photos, over 65 color reproductions, and the words of Voysey and those who knew him. Author Anne Stewart O’Donnell considers the unique spiritual philosophy, “Individualism,” that made Voysey’s architecture revolutionary and gave his pattern designs their remarkable power.

Inspired by William Morris’s Arts and Crafts publications and contemporary European design trends, Dard Hunter forged a unique design path in the United States in the early 1900s. Hunter’s distinctive typography and elegant forms are icons of the American Arts and Crafts style; his graphic art remains instantly recognizable and beloved today. Dard Hunter: The Graphic Works, the first illustrated book that surveys Hunter’s graphic artwork, features more than 80 of his designs for book covers and title pages, booklets, bookplates, brochures, letterhead, and stained glass windows. Accompanied with historical photographs and examples from Hunter’s design contemporaries, author Lawrence Kreisman’s illuminating essay establishes Hunter as a unique voice that emerged from a multitude of extraordinary influences in an incomparable era of flourishing artistic achievement.

In this book, Anne Stewart O’Donnell, editor-in-chief of Style 1900 magazine, gives an engaging account of the Motawi Tileworks story, from the company’s design and manufacturing process through its innovative inventory system. A foreword by Joseph A. Taylor, cofounder and president of the Tile Heritage Foundation, places Motawi Tileworks firmly in the forefront of contemporary tilemakers. The book concludes with a photo essay that leads the reader through the tile-making process.

Christopher Marley’s graceful arrangements of jewel-like arthropods are stunning works of art. Marley’s keen eye for design combines with his entomological education to produce mesmerizing, kaleidoscopic bug mandalas and striking up-close-and-personal single-insect portraits. Neither painted nor digitally enhanced, the artist’s subjects appear in this book just as they would if you found one on your screen door. Each gorgeous creation is identified with its scientific and common names, and many are accompanied by concise descriptive text. In succinct essays, Marley writes about insect collecting and its benefits to the environment; he describes his creative process in choosing and arranging the creatures for optimal visual effect.

Louis Henry Sullivan’s designs stand today as leading exemplars of Chicago School architecture. Adhering to his now famous dictum “Form follows function,” Sullivan (American, 1856–1924) brought to his practice a conviction that ornamentation should arise naturally from a building’s overall design, restating themes expressed in the structure as a whole. He honored this ideal in his skyscrapers and his residential commissions, as well as in the small-town banks so important to the second half of his career. In Louis Sullivan: Creating a New American Architecture, nearly 200 photographs with descriptive captions document Sullivan’s genius for modern design. Patrick Cannon introduces each chapter with key biographical information and discusses the influences that shaped Sullivan’s illustrious career. Rare historical photographs chronicle those buildings that, sadly, have since been destroyed, while James Caulfield’s contemporary photography captures Sullivan’s existing Chicago buildings and many other structures in eastern and midwestern cities that are of equal importance in the architect’s oeuvre.

Recognized as the “father of the American skyscraper,” architect Louis Sullivan believed that ornamentation should arise naturally from the larger design. After creating a number of high-profile big-city structures, Sullivan turned his skills toward small midwestern towns, where he designed several “jewel box” banks, so called for their compact size, simplicity, and use of stained-glass windows. One of these, Merchants National Bank in Grinnell, Iowa, serves as a shining example of Sullivan’s approach to organic ornamentation.

Louis H. Sullivan, one of America’s most influential architects, strove to develop a purely American architectural vision; his ideas inspired his protégé Frank Lloyd Wright and other young Chicago architects to develop the Prairie school. Wright’s strongly horizontal designs, with low-hipped or flat roofs, bands of artglass windows, and open interior planning, now rank among the most respected domestic buildings in the country. The designs of William E. Drummond, John S. Van Bergen, and Walter Burley Griffin had much in common with Wright’s, but other architects, such as George Washington Maher, Robert C. Spencer Jr., and Tallmadge & Watson, developed other interpretations of the Prairie house, adding decorative columns and mosaic fireplace surrounds, or favoring more conventional entrances with clearly defined rooms. The Prairie style fell out of vogue before World War I, though Van Bergen continued to build the houses into the 1920s, and Wright’s famous Wingspread was built in 1937. The houses conceived by these early-20th-century architects stand as icons of American ingenuity.

The telephone booth is in its twilight, a victim of tiny, brightly colored gizmos that can be programmed to play “La Cucaracha.” Mild-mannered newspapermen determined to transmogrify into superheroes will have to start changing in dumpsters. Now is the perfect time, then, for a retrospective of history’s greatest booths, designed by architecture’s finest minds. Architect Steve Schaecher presents colorful drawings and keen analyses of 30 telephone booths designed by such giants as Palladio, Le Corbusier, and Wright—all finely rendered and profoundly wacky.

In the Arizona desert lies an intriguing landscape of architectural experiments. Small dwellings, conceived by adventurous apprentices at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin Fellowship, embrace the natural, rugged terrain surrounding Taliesin West. In constructing these shelters, students combed the desert for dwelling sites, considered the effects of extreme temperature change and winter rain, gathered construction materials from surrounding hills and dry riverbeds, and explored what Wright termed “organic architecture.” Under Arizona Skies features photographs and architectural plans of the most exemplary student dwellings, along with personal accounts written by Victor E. Sidy, dean of the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture, and Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, director of archives at the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.

Many fledgling families and modest wage earners of the early 20th century saw the American dream of home ownership come true in the form of a bungalow. Smaller and plainer than Victorian houses, bungalows combined affordability with the aesthetics of the Arts and Crafts movement. They were also versatile, particularly regarding their bedrooms; open-air sleeping porches and space-saving “built-ins” made use of unfinished or underused areas. Trimmed with distinctive woodwork and decorated with wallpaper and other handicrafts, bungalow bedrooms were cozy retreats.

Today we seldom consider the door’s aesthetic value. But during the bungalow era, designers believed that doors should reinforce the architectural style of the house and project a feeling of hospitality. In keeping with Arts and Crafts principles, many bungalow doors were made of thick wood and featured handwrought metalwork, exposed supports, and decorative art glass windows. Duchscherer and Keister here trace the history of bungalow door designs, from early creations by Craftsman luminaries to prefabrications that look handcrafted to doors influenced by later “romantic revival” styles.

In the early 20th century, bungalows were the height of efficiency and convenience for middle-class homeowners. Although Americans wanted homes that could house an increasingly hectic, mobile lifestyle, they did not want to sacrifice domestic traditions such as having a dining room in which to enjoy family feasts. Revitalized by the bungalow’s open floor plans, built-in cabinetry, and Arts and Crafts sensibility, the dining room shed its stuffy image to become a living space as stylish as it was functional. Here are examples of woodwork, lighting, wall coverings, and furnishings gracing bungalow dining rooms.

Bungalow living was indoor-outdoor living. Gardens and porches linked the house to the natural world, blurring the boundaries between interior and exterior. Tastemaker Gustav Stickley championed porches for the fresh air and other benefits they provided. Adorned with flowering vines and furnished with cozy hammocks and wicker furniture, the bungalow porch came to symbolize the good life. Here are dozens of photographs of porches, pergolas, verandas, decks, patios, and classic outdoor furniture, with illustrations from vintage postcards and magazines and commentary by Paul Duchscherer.

fr ank lloyd w right Brash, outspoken, funny, irreverent, and unafraid of the most sweeping generalizations, Frank Lloyd Wright went against the grain in his career as a writer and lecturer, just as he flouted convention in the creation of astonishing buildings. On subjects as diverse as McCarthyism and cement blocks, he produced countless lectures and articles, a half-dozen books, and a remarkable series of informal talks delivered to his apprentices on Sunday mornings. In Frank Lloyd Wright: On Architecture, Nature, and the Human Spirit, editor Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer, the editor of several collections of Wright’s writings and director of archives for the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation, has culled more than 200 quotations from a wide range of sources. Themes include: architecture, democracy and the individual, work and success, wisdom, creativity, and the soul and faith.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs for typography, books, posters, murals, and magazines have remained relatively obscure, even though they are key components of his oeuvre. This book thoroughly investigates the artist’s innovative graphic work and places it within the context of various aesthetic movements, from Arts and Crafts to Bauhaus and De Stijl. Wright’s books are examined as are his designs for the Wasmuth Portfolio, and the murals for Midway Gardens and the Imperial Hotel are explored; one chapter is devoted to the covers he created for Liberty magazine.

In this selection from the writings of Frank Lloyd Wright, the architect’s guiding principles and broader social outlook are presented in an evocative joining of text and image. Each section concentrates on a major aspect of Wright’s work, with case studies illuminating his idea of organic architecture. Architectural plans, drawings, photographs, and color renderings from the Frank Lloyd Wright Archives at Taliesin West complement the text.

Alongside newly discovered site photographs and Frank Lloyd Wright’s original drawings, more than 50 previously unpublished letters between Wright (American, 1867–1959) and his client, artist Rose Pauson, chronicle the design and construction of one of the architect’s most creative houses—the Pauson House in Phoenix, Arizona. The letters reveal the ongoing debates over bills and design changes, and the emotions behind the arguments, offering a rare candid glimpse behind the formal image of Frank Lloyd Wright. No other book so fully reveals the architect’s personality and working methods through his correspondence with a client. Editor Allan Wright Green is the great-nephew of Rose Pauson; contributor Bruce Brooks Pfeiffer is director of archives for the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. In 1944 H. F. Johnson Jr., president of the SC Johnson & Son Company (famed for its wax), commissioned Frank Lloyd Wright to create a new laboratory space that would be as innovative as the research and development team working inside it. The result was a new kind of skyscraper, with floors cantilevered from a central core, windows made of Pyrex glass tubing (the same material as the chemists’ test tubes), and stripes of Wright’s signature Cherokee red brick, all balanced on a small pedestal base. Frank Lloyd Wright’s SC Johnson Research Tower investigates the rise and fall of this remarkable building. Mark Hertzberg’s text explores the design, the construction, and—through interviews with Johnson employees—the experience of working in the Tower. Hertzberg’s artful photographs document the building—inside and out—as it appears today. Built in 1906, the Thomas P. Hardy house in Racine, Wisconsin, is one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s best-known residential designs. A prime example of Wright’s “organic architecture,” this avant-garde marvel perches on a bluff overlooking Lake Michigan, perfectly integrated with the sloped and architecturally challenging site. Author and photographer Mark Hertzberg’s virtual tour features previously unpublished drawings for Wright’s original (and unbuilt) conception of the house, correspondence between Hardy and Wright, interviews with current and former owners and neighbors, and photographs of the house in all seasons and from many different perspectives.

When Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Darwin D. Martin House Complex in 1903, he filled the windows, doors, skylights, and lay lights with nearly 400 pieces of his signature art glass. These “light screens,” as Wright described them, were fundamental to his architectural philosophy of “bringing the outside in” by blurring the line between enclosed and open spaces. Then, in the 1960s, three-quarters of the pieces were removed. Thanks to the efforts of the Martin House Restoration Corporation, the art glass has been restored to its original home. Presented in its original context, the glass may be seen as a basic element of one of Wright’s masterpieces.

Unity Temple of Oak Park, Illinois, was considered a modern masterwork from the moment it was completed in 1908. Frank Lloyd Wright (1867–1959) sought to produce a structure as dynamic as the congregation that would occupy it, interpreting the liberal nature of Unitarian thought in his groundbreaking design. Outside, the use of reinforced concrete was revolutionary. Inside, warm hues complemented the red oak trim, and skylights and high clerestory art-glass windows filled the space with natural light. A national historic landmark, Unity Temple is still in use today.

The first residence designed by Frank Lloyd Wright was in Oak Park, a Chicago suburb; he built the Queen Anne/Shingle-style house in 1889, for himself. Wright’s final house design in Oak Park, the 1913 Adams House, was among the last of his now-famous Prairie-style houses. Hometown Architect spotlights 27 Wright homes—and his innovative Unity Temple—in Oak Park and River Forest, documenting this rich period in the architect’s career. The last chapter surveys eight “lost, altered, or possibly Wright” homes.

Despite Frank Lloyd Wright’s global renown, more than 100 of his buildings—one of every five built—have been destroyed. Gone are his majestic Imperial Hotel in Tokyo and the playful Midway Gardens in Chicago. Buffalo has lost the innovative Larkin Administration Building. “How could it happen?” asks author Carla Lind in Lost Wright. She then proceeds to show exactly why each of these buildings has vanished. Out of print for several years, this is a revised and expanded edition.

Mark Hertzberg has written and photographed the first book to tie together all the Racine (Wisconsin) works of Frank Lloyd Wright, whose revolutionary designs galvanized American architecture. In Racine, almost all the significant stages of Wright’s career after 1900 are represented. Hertzberg punctuates his lively, personalized account with anecdotes from people who worked or lived in Wright’s creations. An introduction by Edgar Tafel, one of Wright’s first apprentices, is followed by in-depth discussions of Wingspread, the SC Johnson Administration Building, the Research Tower, the Monolith, the Johnson homes, and other Wright projects in Racine.

Probably the most famous modern house in America, Fallingwater was the greatest personal and professional triumph in the 70-year career of Frank Lloyd Wright. He daringly placed this Pennsylvania country home right over a dramatic waterfall.

Here are a dozen of Wright’s earliest works—designed from 1887 to 1900 —illustrating how the architect grew to become world famous. In all of these houses, Wright’s hallmarks are visible: strong geometric forms, integrated ornaments, open plans, a respect for nature, and a constant search for perfection.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Glass Designs

A799  ISBN 0-87654-471-5

A796  ISBN 978-0-87654-468-6

Like a composer of music, Frank Lloyd Wright directed every element that went into his buildings, inside and out. Decorative elements were not afterthoughts but intrinsic parts of the architectural whole. The wealth of interior objects featured in this book includes furniture, lighting, textiles, decorative panels, metalwork, tableware, sculpture, murals, and mosaics.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Glass Designs explores the many facets of Wright’s work with this “magical material,” from his world-renowned art glass designs to glass mosaics, prism glass, and innovations such as tubular glass and invisible joints in plate-glass windows.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Life and Homes

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie Houses

A727  ISBN 978-1-56640-996-4

A728  ISBN 978-1-56640-997-1

This book captures the essence of the colorful architect and his innovative designs. Engaging stories trace his youth, his years of success, and his amazingly productive life. Dramatic photographs show the three homes Wright built for himself, laboratories for his breakthroughs.

Hugging the ground, with low, sheltering roofs and spacious interiors, Wright’s Prairie houses have long been favorites among his hundreds of buildings. This book details the origins of the Prairie style, shows typical features and furnishings, and walks through 10 of the best-known examples—icons such as the Robie and Coonley houses.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian Houses A729  ISBN 978-1-56640-998-8

Wright strove to provide moderately priced houses that were every bit as good as more expensive ones. His solution was the Usonian house. This book presents a dozen of these forwardlooking houses that Wright designed to fit the lifestyles of average Americans. The Usonian project inspired many distinguished architects to accept commissions for modest houses that could be constructed from inexpensive materials.
