This is a beautiful little book with alot of integrity. Printed on recycled paper and written in accessible language, it gives a brief but interesting tour of simple shelters from around the world. The drawings are intricate but simple to understand and probably detailed enough to have a go at building one of the shelters yourself. The narrative is chatty and informative, and it feels like you're flicking through an enthusiast's sketchbook.
This would be a lovely pocket-sized gift or source of inspiration for anyone with an interest in sustainability, construction, architecture, design or simple living... or for the person who dreams of building a garden hideaway. A little gem.
