Just choose your project, click on image, pause to enter site with your magic password and decoder ring, blow up image, and copy image URL . . .

Or, grazie ? The downside of this method of recording is that, if HA takes down the images, you've lost it. I have no idea what their policy or practice is
---and since this is a priceless opportunity to see some otherwise unavailable material (unless you're a dormouse living in the basement of the Avery), it
makes sense to take no chances. Needless to say, I don't have the patience to save everything we've seen in the last couple of weeks. Maybe SaveWright
needs an archivist of its own ? Good luck finding and paying such an individual . . .

which sounds like gratsi. I guess. Italian is in my future, if at all . . .

and, no, the magic sign-in potion didn't last. Huh. No miracles in the digital universe, for me . . .

On my Mac, I'm clicking on the image to enter the "sign in" high res mode. Then right click and "save image to downloads." This saves images in the 800 KB to 1.2 MB range. Lots of nice detail. Then just click on the next image of the set and repeat. Some lesser known projects here like Wheeler and Morris that will be fun to study.

Right on---sounds like a comparable process.

Maybe we're onto the next thing in publishing: a virtual zine consisting of attractively packaged URLs, with optional commentary.

Editor can be a trained chimp or undergraduate intern, whichever walks in the (virtual) door first . . .

What could you call it ?

Probably a good idea for us to each save what interests us, as I suspect these images will not be online forever.
Some of these items particularly the originals we see are NOT in the Archives at Avery.

The Wainer project is a nice little gem. I always likes these small designs.

Perhaps I am misreading, but I just noticed that the 3 portfolios issued from 1977 to 1982 sold for $1,500.
I paid that much for volume 3 alone, and volume 1, which sold out immediately and is the hardest to find,
used to be priced more than the other two combined. Is FLW's stock dropping?

On the previous page, I wrote: ". . . a number of Wright books and magazines sold for ridiculously low prices . . . " and yes, it would appear that these publications were undersold, perhaps overshadowed by the dramatic---and signed---original drawings . . . ?


We saw the 1942 design for a second Gregor Affleck house, in perspective only. The project appears in Monograph 8, and here are those items together with the colored view drawing---a classic Jack Howe opus, I'd guess.


(The plan drawing was curiously distorted on the Monograph page; I had to wrangle the image into rectilinearity before posting it . . .)
