"Hometown Architect: The Complete Buildings of Frank Lloyd Wright in Oak Park and River Forest, Illinois" presents 27 homes, along with Unity Temple, to document one of the most influential periods of the architect's career. More than 90 photographs of the buildings' exteriors and interiors are accompanied by descriptive captions, while introductory text to each chapter details the story behind each commission, addressing Wright's relationships with his clients, the importance of each building in Wright's oeuvre, and the characteristics that make each house unique. The endpapers feature a map locating all of the sites discussed in the book.
