Tales of Taliesin: A Memoir of Fellowship
Cornelia Brierly, one of the first apprentices to attend Frank Lloyd Wright's school of architecture, was a working colleague of the master architect; during the last thirty years of his career, she made important design contributions to many of his building projects.
This lavishly illustrated memoir, complete with fascinating historical photographs, tells the story of nearly seventy years spent with the Taliesin Fellowship. It is an important work, not only because of the author's closeness to the twentieth century's foremost architect but because she has observed first hand the unfolding of organic architecture -- Wright's design precepts made manifest. In an affectionate, honest, and perceptive book, she celebrates the fellowship as a way of life and brings to life a vibrant community that is still going strong, forty years after Wright's death.
