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. re this one,cant really tell what it is (maybe the Pope?)..

    but re Graffiti in general, i have always felt sad that the ones who do this are usually ferociously hounded and maligned.

    so often i have seen Graffiti which is compelling, artistic, inspiring, thought provoking…

    of course i understand that "too" much of it, every which where can get impossibly trashy/gang"ish"/ugly…

    but, there must be a way to allow significant public areas for this.

    some long time ago, i saw an article re another country.. mabye it was one of the communist ones, dont know, where they did allow/assign large areas for anyone's Graffitti.. Maybe the pictures i saw were only for public relations, but they were beautiful and shocking well done..
