Taliesin Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation 1985
2 Taliesin Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation 1985
Scottsdale, Ariszona Printer only 1986 soft cover Very good 
This is a beautiful oversized, full color promotional piece likely sold to tourists. The condition is quite good with just a flat crease to the upper front corner and isolated wear spots along the spine which in no way compromise it. It's in full color throughout with gorgeous photos of Wright's work and that of Taliesin Architects. The name Taliesin derives from that of a Welsh poet-bard who sang of the glories of fine art. The piece (it seems too big to call a booklet) measures 9"x12". Some extra goodies were found tucked inside which I will pass along. One is an empty shopping bag from a Taliesin gift shop and the other a newspaper article from the March 27, 1987 Detroit News about a Weight house in Bloomfield Hills (The Gregor S. Affleck house) which the family donated to Lawrence Institute of Technology for restoration by students.
