Description - Modern American Homes by H.V.Von Holst

In 1913, a Chicago architect compiled this wonderful portfolio of American homes and buildings that he said embodied "the back to nature" movement of the times. Today, this faithful reprint is a treasure of Craftsman bungalow and Prairie house styles, including work by the venerable Frank Lloyd Wright and Green & Green. The houses are portrayed in charming black and white imagery that details their exteriors, as well as portraying interior features and some landscaping. In all, more than 130 houses are featured, along with examples of boathouses, tent-houses, garages, apartment buildings and a few public buildings. Most of the homes are modest in size, and all celebrate craftsmanship, whether constructed of wood, concrete, plaster, or stucco.
