Frank Lloyd Wright's groundbreaking designs, innovative construction techniques, and inviting interiors continue to astound and inspire generations of architects and nonarchitects alike. The only comprehensive collection of Wright-designed buildings open to the public in the United States and Japan, Wright Sites has been revised and expanded to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the architect's birth in June 1867. The fourth edition of our best-selling guidebook contains twenty new sites, updated site descriptions and access information, and, for the first time, color photographs. It also includes itineraries for Wright road trips, a list of archives, and a selected bibliography.

The introduction, revised for this edition, is by Jack Quinan, a founding member of the Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy and author of Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House.

A fine guidebook with some lovely photos, interesting histories, and helpful guidance (the latter if you were inclined to tour around and visit Wright's buildings). Guidebooks are short by design but I felt this one could have been twice as thick to provide more information and more photographs in particular. Some entries have only one photo which just isn't enough when presenting Wright's architecture.
