Lots of excellent color and b & w images, light on text, that looks at his life and work in the Monterey area.
The involvement of Mills in the design and building of Nat and Margaret Owings' Wild Bird is described (it was a longtime family friendship of Margaret with the Mills family that brought Mark into the project), as well as the spec houses for Della Walker (Mark helped build her FLW house, recruited as a carpenter to interpret the design).
Nice book, I am enjoying it.
Always suspected something like this. In a sense it's her house. Nat let her do her thing there I bet. Good for him.dkottum wrote: The involvement of Mills in the design and building of Nat and Margaret Owings' Wild Bird is described (it was a longtime family friendship of Margaret with the Mills family that brought Mark into the project)
The extraordinary patience of things!
This beautiful place defaced with a crop of suburban houses -
How beautiful when we first beheld it,
Unbroken field of poppy and lupin walled with clean cliffs;
No intrusion but two or three horses pasturing,
Or a few milch cows rubbing their flanks on the outcrop rock-heads -
Now the spoiler has come: does it care?
Not faintly. It has all time. It knows the people are a tide
That swells and in time will ebb, and all
Their works dissolve. Meanwhile the image of the pristine beauty
Lives in the very grain of the granite,
Safe as the endless ocean that climbs our cliff. - As for us:
We must uncenter our minds from ourselves;
We must unhumanize our views a little, and become confident
As the rock and ocean we were made from.

The "house next door" is visible on Google. Looks very interesting. Is it one of the houses that got published?
