In captivating color photography and well-researched commentary, Tom Heinz captures the essence of Frank Lloyd Wright's genius and his fascination with the interplay of light and shadow in an exquisite representation of Frank Lloyd Wright's lighting treatments. Frank Lloyd Wright's Stained Glass & Lightscreens features not only Wright's iridescent stained glass but a sweeping range of his "lightscreens," Wright's term for his designs that capture the essence of both light and shadow. These screens were not intended to obscure the window view but to modify and focus it through framing. Wright's abstraction of patterns and geometry from nature--plants and flowers--resulted in imaginative stained-glass designs. While he is best known for his stained glass set in metal frames, he also created screens in cut wood, concrete, and terra-cotta. Thomas A. Heinz, AIA, has been involved with the restoration of more than forty Frank Lloyd Wright buildings and is the author of twenty books on Wright. He is also coauthor with Randell L. Makinson and principal photographer for Greene and Greene: The Blacker House and Greene and Greene Creating a Style. He lives in Mettawa, Illinois.

This lavishly illustrated book devotes itself to Wright's formidable contribution to the medium and features a number of powerful two-dimensional graphic designs and a number of three-dimensional units. Stained glass in the USA as well as the technical aspects of glass making are discussed. The majority of his work in glass was concentrated into the first decade of the 20th century when Wright abandoned old-fashioned stained glass windows and began experimenting with light screens of concrete developing into wood fretwork and glass block and tubing.

Industry and Imagination in Ancient and Modern Civilizations is the third book of the series and examines the generations of the Industrial Revolution, society during WWI and WWII, Modern and Contemporary times. During the era of the Industrial Revolution, the role of the artist transformed as the patronage changed and advancements in photography were able to portray likenesses. The artist sought new avenues by using art as an expressive tool. As time progressed, artistic expression navigated the art into innovative, imaginative and unique styles. Art became whatever the artist intended it to be.

Wright was an early proponent of "total design." Unsatisfied with what was available in designing a given space or home, he invented what was needed, developing a language of architectural detail and styling that is unique and which extended to the tables, bookcases, easy chairs, sofas, and cabinets; to rugs and murals; to stonework; to stained glass "light screens," which served as windows and doors and room partitions; to lighting.
