This fascinating book is the catalog of the stunning work of Austrian architect Josef Frank, whose contribution to modernism is fully explored here, through the amazing catalog of his works. His personality as an artist, the context of post-World War I Europe, his work in America, his views in the field of textile design, are all discussed in essays written by distinguished scholars. Covering all the fields in which he distinguished himself during his career, the volume provides a detailed narration of his development as an artist while discussing a wide span of his works.

Josef Frank (1885-1967) was an Austrian-born architect, artist, and designer who created the Vienna School of Architecture, together with Oskar Strnad, and its concept of Modern Houses, housing, and interiors. He adopted Swedish citizenship in the second half of his life. [Wikipedia]
