The Frank Lloyd Wright House Beautiful Greeting Assortment Notecard Box features designs from Frank Lloyd Wright. The Arts and Crafts movement, with its rejection of mass production technology, gave rise to an enthusiasm for fine art printing, and Chicago, where Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) practiced architecture early in his career was a national center for artisan produced books. Wright designed several books for the tiny Auvergne Press in the late 1890s. The House Beautiful is the finest of them. Its text, by Unitarian minister William Gannett, proposed that spiritual, intellectual, and bodily health was augmented by a properly designed and furnished home. Gannett's views dovetailed with Wright's emerging theory of organic architecture.
Each card measures 5" x 3.75" and contains an intricate foil stamping of Wright's designs with deluxe coordinating lined envelopes. The drawer box design with ribbon pull measures 5.75" x 4.5". Perfect for admires of Wright and collectors of stationery. 16 Notecards, 2 each of 8 designs. 17 Envelopes.
