Want to Pass Out Some Mini Books?

We just did our 4th printing of these 2″ X 2-1/2″ mini Tiny Homes books (32 pages); now over 20,000 in print. If you would like a bunch to give away (children love them), we’ll send you a batch (say 10, 20, or 30). Send yr. address, # of mini books you want, to tinyhomes@shelterpub.com, and we’ll ship to you. The very best type of advertising for Tiny Homes, which has now sold over 40,000 real size (9″ X 12″) copies. We hope for them be given out to kids, plus people who will spread the word.

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. Hi Lloyd, I asked before and I'm going to ask again (guess I'm banking on the effects of good old pester power) I'd love to have some of these out in England? I'd even pay postage if you wanted me to?

  3. Hi Lloyd,

    I'm another Heath asking again. I'd love to have some tiny Books to pass out here in Southern Illnois. I didn't hear from the first requests so I'm not sure if they made it through the electronic world. Anyway I'd love to have 10 to 20 books to pass out. There are lots of innovative folks around the Southern Illinois University area. Even Bucky Fuller used to teach here.

  4. I would love to have 30 tiny books to distribute here in Northern Calif. (Sonoma Co.).
    Thank you!

  5. OH MY GOSH! This would REALLY work well for my students! I teach high school English, and we often research tiny homes as a way to track the American Dream (as well as my ulterior motive to brainwash one of them into becoming a politician who will support the Tiny House Movement.) PLEASE send me as MANY as you can – I'll even pay for 125 if you like. At the very least, could you send me 36 for my 2 classes? Email me for my school address, please!

  6. Hi Lloyd….i had emailed shelterpub almost a month ago requesting a small number of your tiny books and also included a pic of my own tiny house which you posted on this blog, (thank you very much, i was thrilled to see it here). But to date haven't rec'd anything, so wished to check and make sure i hadn't been lost in the shuffle.
