The first work devoted entirely to Marion Mahony Griffin's exquisite architectural and botanical drawings....[The book is] a very important resource in the growing body of scholarship on the life and work of Marion Mahony Griffin. Publishing passages from 'The Magic of America' is a great service to both the scholarly and general readership. - Pauline Saliga, Executive Director, Society of Architectural Historians and Charnley-Persky House Museum Foundation, Chicago
