Randolph C. Henning is a prolific author as well as being an architect. He knows I am swimming in material for my Penwern book so I can’t do a proper book review, but I must call attention to his latest book, this one about Aaron G. Green, a member of the Taliesin Fellowship in the 1940s and then Wright’s West Coast representative.
The book is handsome. The book is extensive. The book is heavy (almost seven pounds!). Most important, the book is comprehensive…I would expect nothing less from Randy. His previous books include: “At Taliesin: Newspaper Columns by Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Fellowship, 1934 – 1937” (1992); “Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin: Illustrated by Vintage Postcards” (with Kathryn Smith, 2011); and “The Architecture of Alfred Browning Parker: Miami’s Maverick Modernist” (also 2011).
The book is available on-line, but first try to support your local bookseller and see if he/she can get it for you.
Randy was one of the founding members at OAD, the Organic Architecture and Design Archives, Inc. with Eric O’Malley and William Blair Scott: http://www.oadarchives.com
