Published in 1924 by the Chicago chapter of the AIA, in part to funnel some badly-needed money to Sullivan, who was gravely ill at the time, this book summarizes, in graphic and text form, the master's concepts of the organic basis of all design theory and aesthetics. This image, Finis or "End" is considered by many to be the most spectacular of them all. Proofs were ushed to Sullivan's bedside shortly before his death, the book was published posthumously. The original drawings, now in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, I believe, show no erasures or corrections, and those who saw him at work on them remarked that he seemed to go into a trance, with the designs flowing (growing) organically and effortlessly from the end of his pencil!There is some minor staining on one corner as shown in the photos, but the mat easily covers it without impacting on the actual image. Paper size is 20 x 14.This is a rare chance to own a significant image of singular importance to the history of 20th century architecture. Don't let it slip away!
