Tiny Homes Book in Final Stages

Detritus of about a year’s work as we start our 4th and final printout of all pages, this time on high-quality proofing paper. Rick has sent a selection of photos to our new Hong Kong printers (Paramount) to begin the process of insuring we get the colors right. In our usual seat-of-pants book production process, we’ll now turn to working on a cover, and me to probably several more rewrites of the intro. (I’m still figuring out just what we’ve got here.) Each time I look at it I get more excited.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.
