Picture 1 If you had a chance to visit the fantastic Louis Sullivan exhibit this last year at the Chicago Cultural Center titled "Louis Sullivan's Idea" then you know how fantastic it was. I've been eagerly awaiting the catalog put together by Tim Samuelson and artist Chris Ware, but have not heard when it was supposed to be released. Thanks to a Chicago Magazine article on artist Chris Ware, we have some tantalizing news. More after the jump...

As stated by Ware in the article:

"Speaking of books, the catalog that goes along with Louis Sullivan’s Idea and that was due out earlier this year still is in full production but is simply late. Tim and I have greatly expanded it with material that wouldn’t fit in the exhibit, and as it’s supposed to stand on its own as a tour through the shape of Sullivan’s life, we decided to slow down and take the time necessary to make it worth owning rather than rushing it out before the exhibit closed. Like the exhibit, it includes images of the buildings taken only during Sullivan’s lifetime and also reproduces drawings, blueprints and fragments never before seen, even in the show, as well as including every photograph of Sullivan that has survived. Finally, it includes pages of historical anecdotes and details collected from interviews and reminiscences that have never been published, all with the aim of presenting Sullivan in the most vivid light possible, which is really Tim's forte. I’ve never met anyone who knows better how to bring history to life so unpretentiously and colorfully as Tim. It’s to be published by Rich Cahan and Mike Williams’s CityFiles Press. It should be done by the end of the year. Ideally."
