This was a very disappointing book. The author is an architect and long time member of the Taliesin Fellowship and certainly knows the topic. The problem is the book deals only with generalities and is not much help. I hoped for more on how to add FLW touches to a home - what we get a platitudes, a few odd examples and lots of repetition. Noticed at least four times where the author mentions the value of high quality glass. Don''t think this book works well for people new to FLW and certainly not for hardcore fans.
