...more about the Hollyhock House
As with Wright's designs in general, his designs of art glass were not conventional. It takes an unconventional book, such as this, with superb drawings to adequately describe these designs. The major difference in Wright art glass design, compared to conventional art glass design, is that the designs heavily depend on the came configuration rather than the glass. This is more than adequately covered in the book by both text and graphics.
Page numbers are keyed to a plan view of the house so that the reader can readily locate the different window designs in the house. An easy to read chart is included for the identification of glass and zinc came by stock number for each window.
