Travelers can visit the works of artist and architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, across western New York. But for fans of Wright who cannot make the trip, a new book is being released to honor the work of the iconic artist.

Jan Booth Sheridan recently wrote a 96-page book, titled "Frank Lloyd Wright in Buffalo and Western New York." It hones in on the legacy of Wright's work and encourages others to appreciate his structural designs, according to the Hamburg Sun News. Although the city of Buffalo is renowned for its chicken wings and football team, Sheridan sheds light on the work of Wright in the area that has been overlooked for years.

"I've made it user-friendly so that anybody could pick it up, not just architectural scholars," Sheridan told the news source.

Sheridan also dives into the history behind some of Wright's most famous works, such as the Darwin D. Martin House Complex, the Larkin Administration Building and Graycliff Estate.

Architecture jobs are predicted to increase by 16 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Historical structures, such as those designed by Wright, may motivate future generations to enter the industry.
