The Wasmuth Portfolio was a collaborative effort between Ernst Wasmuth, a Berlin publisher and Frank Lloyd Wright. It was Wasmuth's idea to publish a complete folio of Wright's work to date. The project was completed during Wright's first trip to Europe in 1909, and was published in 1910-11. The collection of Wright's houses and commercial buildings received far more attention and praise in Europe than in the United States. Contemporary architects called it "the most important book of the century."
