Book of the Fine Arts Building
This monograph was originally published by the Studebaker Corporation in 1911 as an advertisement for the building. Originally designed and printed by Ralph Fletcher Seymour, the book was a celebration of the Studebaker's successful commitment to art and culture in Chicago, for the book showed the building in its prime during the years when it dominated the world of art, literature, theater and musical education in Chicago. In the years before the First World War, it was home, and played host to, more people associated with changing Chicago's cultural life than any other building in the city.
