The life and work of visionary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright launches our new activity book series, Meet the Architect!, an expansion of our Meet the Artist! series. Flaps, cutouts, and pull tabs, take readers on a fascinating journey through Wright's famous works--the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Fallingwater, and Taliesin, among others--and the materials and techniques he used to create them. This hands-on introduction will inspire budding architects from ages eight to eighty.
Patricia Geis, a graphic designer based in Barcelona, Spain, is the author of the critically acclaimed Meet the Artist! series, which includes titles on Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Henri Matisse, Vincent van Gogh, and Leonardo da Vinci.
