Screen Shot 2014-05-20 at 7.27.11 AMI recently received a copy of the new book, Frank Lloyd Wright's Nakoma Clubhouse & Sculptures, written and designed by Wright aficionado Douglas M. Steiner. The book is an exploration of how the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Nakoma Clubhouse, originally conceived for Madison, WI, came to be posthumously-built as part of a golf resort in Clio, California.

The book details the history of the architectural design, as well as, the geometric statues meant to adorn the initial design. The sculptures took on a separate life of their own, being executed in various forms over the years until their execution as monumental granite statues at the SC Johnson Headquarters in Racine, WI. The book is easy to dive into and its focus on this little-known Wright design makes it a welcome addition to any Wright library. Find out more and order your copy here.
