Full of ideas to power your imagination
on 23 October 2007
This is a luxurious book that will keep drawing you back to it time and time again. Filled with photos and illustrations along with fascinating stories, it details the background to several 'shelters' across the world ranging from driftwood shacks to really large structures. The key thing is that each one was built by hand as a home to be lived in.
As a book for design inspiration it is without equal (although the original 'Shelter' by the same author comes close!
There is a rustic feel about the whole book - it's almost like you are reading through someone's personal scrapbook, which in a way you are.
If you are interested in building, whether it's a shed in the garden or something much bigger, don't delay - get this book.
