Progress on Tiny Homes on the Move Book

Rick has been working over a month now on the 1000 images in the book, using Photoshop to enhance (and sometimes rescue) the photos. He’s just about finished. As of a few days ago, we finished layout of the last pages. Next we’ve got a round of corrections, then proofreading, then printing out the entire book full size on Epson proofing paper.

   For the last week I’ve been fooling around with a title page showing people in the book. Here’s the latest version, just finished this morning. Scissors and removable scotch tape at this stage.

    We’re working on a bunch of ideas for the cover. Nothing solid yet. Subtitle: Wheels & Water.

   Target date is books in stores by May.

   We’ve had orders for 2100 copies of Tiny Homes this month, and the month isn’t even over. Saving our bacon.

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.
