Synopses & Reviews
A facsimile reproduction of the Sears Modern Homes catalog. Over a hundred home kits were offered by Sears Roebuck in the early 1900s, either as simple kits with only the blueprints and bill-of-materials or as complete homes with all materials and finishes. Among the architects who contributed designs was Frank Lloyd Wright, and several homes reflect the Arts & Crafts movement. Thousands of these homes are still standing and are beginning to be recognized as architectural treasures.
