Building Taliesen: A Home of Love and Loss - Book

 

Building Taliesen: A Home of Love and Loss by Ron McCrea tells the fascinating story of the building of Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesen, which became the architest's principal residence for the later years of his life. The book includes photos of Taliesen under construction and illustrates Wright's own recollections of the first summer there. The author also delves into the relationship between Wright and Mamah Borthwick - each abandoned their families to be together, causing a scandal that reverberated far beyond Wright's beloved Wisconsin valley. The shocking murder and fire that took place in August 1914 brought the first phase of life at Taliesen to a tragic end.
