Mini Books for Mini People

Is this fun! I’ve been walking around the Maker Faire handing out the mini Tiny Homes books (2″ x 2″) to kids. I search the crowds for kids with life, or light in their eyes, and hand them one. Bingo! Delight.

   This is Tristan, who came to our booth riding on his dad’s shoulders. I asked dad if OK to put on blog and he said, “Sure, he’s already a model for Pottery Barn.

   I also search out people who look alive, especially like surfer and skater dudes, or builders or gardeners. Everyone gets it.

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.

  1. Tristan is a cutie, and he seems to be very interested in your tiny Tiny Homes book. What a great idea, Lloyd.

    Dear Lloyd,

    I aspire to be the kid you search out with light in his eyes to give tiny Tiny Homes to. I'm 35 years old.

    Thanks for continuing to inspire us all. Love your blog.
