    This is one of the most joyful reads I’ve had in a long time, and it started with the dust jacket. It’s textured silk under the fingers; a dark monochrome portrait photo of a bohemian-looking Marion Mahony, very 1915; then a band of Cherokee red for the title. Open up and the production follows through. It’s beautifully set out, exceptionally well-illustrated and annotated.

    The book is four essays that in very different ways trace Marion Mahony’s career as artist and architect across five decades (the 1890s to1940s) and three continents - North America, Australia and Asia. The second woman to graduate MIT with a degree in architecture (in 1894) she was already better qualified than her first employer, Frank Lloyd Wright. The two sparked creativity in Wright’s Oak Park studio, designed houses for a host of wealthy Chicago clients and enjoyed some success. Nonetheless, it was always and only the Frank Lloyd Wright show. He was a lifelong and exclusive self-promoter. Even so, by 1909, when FLW abandoned his burgeoning family and thriving practice to take off for Europe with a client’s wife, it was Mahony who picked up the pieces and kept the designs flowing. Most of the other clients hardly noticed he’d gone.

    Wright returned two years later, and Marion Mahony was in no mood to reconcile. Instead she packed bags and went to join the studio of an architect she had met at Oak Park. It was a winning combination. In Walter Burley Griffin she not only found someone whose work she admired and respected, but who also acknowledged and promoted her own staggering talents. They were married the same year and lived and worked together until his death in 1937.

    The book is full of surprises. Not least, discovering that the wonderful presentation drawings of FLW’s Frederick C. Robie House in Chicago, or the Susan Lawrence Dana House in Springfield Illinois, or even the Unity Temple in Oak Park itself, were not in fact made by Lloyd Wright. I’ve known these astonishing drawings and watercolors most of my life, and have never before seen them attributed to Marion Mahony. Not in catalogues, not at exhibitions, not in the many monographs nor in the buildings themselves. Most likely the architectural designs were Wright’s. But now that the doubts are sown, do we know for sure?

    The real treat in these four essays is to find a tremendously talented woman being rewarded at last with her due. The eternal self-promoters naturally expect to corner their own history. Too bad when there’s a David Van Zanten around.

    The four essays in this book are extended versions of six presentations delivered at a symposium conducted alongside an exhibition at the Block Museum ‘Marion Mahony Griffin: Drawing the Form of Nature’ in 2005. The book is lavishly illustrated, although only four plates are in colour. There are several illustrations that are referred to in multiple places throughout the four chapters, and it was good to have the drawings clearly numbered. I liked the symmetry of the first and final chapters, interestingly both written by women, and I come away with a much more developed sense of that rather formidable-looking woman.
