Summary:
"This book encompasses Sullivan's career, his artistic development, sources, and his system of ornament. His formula of 'form follows function' and how the use of terra cotta brought the steel frame to life are explained. Thirty-two hand drawn pen & ink drawings accompanied by photos of the interior and exterior, give the viewer an opportunity to experience many ornamental motifs that are difficult to see at street level or that are inaccessible if the building is not open. A closer look results in a greater appreciation and understanding of the beauty and complexity of each motif." -- Publisher.
