    This elegant clothbound catalog was produced on the occasion of an auction held by Wright on May 18, 2008 Julie Iovine and Bob Bascom s essays and the bibliography are all helpful however, the real focus is Todd Eberle s photos This book is rather large, so they show a great deal of detail The drawing section is also nice, with a sketch of an earlier scheme, various sketches, sketch elevations, hardline elevations, a rendered perspective, and hardline detail drawings.
