Wright, Frank Lloyd. A Taliesin Square-Paper: A Nonpolitical Voice from Our Democratic Minority. Spring Green, Wisc.: January, 1941. Broadside (4pp.; 17 x 17” open, 8 ½ x 8 ½” folded) addressed in type and mailed to Lewis Mumford, dated in pencil “27/1/41”. Light toning along original folds and margins, two minor chips not affecting printed area, otherwise fine. One of an occasional series of publications issued by Wright between 1941 and 1953. Early issues were focused on Wright’s resistance to American involvement in the war in Europe. The present example is Wright’s response to a cablegram from the News Chronicle in London requesting from Wright an article on “How to Rebuild London.” Wright proposes a “decentralized” and expanded “space-scale” city in which railway, automobile, and foot traffic are separated: “London reintegrated should be twenty-five times the area of Old London.”.Wright and Mumford began corresponding in the 1920s, after Mumford had contributed an essay to a Dutch journal in which he discussed Wright’s work.
