More About Edgar Miller and the Handmade Home by Richard Cahan; Michael Williams; Alexander Vertikoff
 
 
 
Overview
Embracing old-world skills in a technological age, Edgar Miller was Chicago s last Renaissance artist. He was a fine painter, a master wood carver, and one of the nation s foremost stained glass designers. He could sculpt, draw hunting portraits, and was considered a pioneer in the use of graphic art in modern advertising. His artistic genius came together in four artistic studios he built on Chicago s north side in the 1920s and 1930s. He touched almost every inch of the studios with daring and surprise. He took rustic brick, crude stone, salvaged tile, found glass, steel, and wood, then Edgarized the homes with stained glass windows, frescos, murals, tile work, and wood carving. This collection contains over 400 images of the homes, which remarkably remain intact today."
