At Taliesin: Newspaper Columns by Frank Lloyd Wright and the Taliesin Friendship, 1934 - 1937
ISBN: 0809317095 Southern Illinois University Press. 1992
"At Taliesin," a series of newspaper columns written by Frank Lloyd Wright and his early Taliesin apprentices, craftsmen, and workers, was featured in several southern Wisconsin newspapers from 1934 through 1937.
The newspaper column first appeared in February 1934, shortly after the Taliesin Fellowship had been formed by Wright in 1932. Resulting from a simple and practical need to advertise the weekly Taliesin film event to a greater audience, the column grew into a format that presented a kaleidoscopic view of life at Taliesin in the Fellowship’s early years.
Of the 285 columns written, 112 are included here. Several are from the 31 columns Wright wrote in his own "organic" style. The resulting collection provides an intimate glimpse of Wright and his youthful Fellowship during a crucial period in Wright’s own lifea time when he grew from creative inactivity to his final years of creative resurgence. Containing much original material that has been all but forgotten, this volume represents an important contribution to the history and understanding of Wright and the Taliesin Fellowship. Fifty eight contemporary photographs are included to augment the columns. The columns document and confirm facts and correct historical inaccuracies and misinformation. This book will prove invaluable to Wright scholars, biographers, and enthusiasts.
