Taliesin Postcards

Newly published is Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin: Illustrated by Vintage Postcards, by architect Randolph Henning. The book covers the earlier Taliesins, the ones lost decades ago to fire and Wright’s tinkering. Most of the postcards come from the author’s personal collection, so most of the images have never been published before.

Mark Hertzberg, on his site, Wright in Racine, has a review of the book. Ron McCrea, who has his own book on Taliesin coming out later this year, also reviews the book here.

Some of Henning’s collection will be part the exhibit of postcards at Taliesin running from April 28 through May 29. This exhibit includes historic postcards of 66 Wright buildings. Also beginning April 28 is a Centennial exhibit highlighting the history and development of Taliesin. Both events are part of the slate of special events commemorating Taliesin’s 100th year .
