Why I’m a Publisher — 3 Minute LK Interview By Yuichi Takeuchi

Last April, I was visited by Yuichi Takeuchi, an artist, carpenter and treehouse builder from Japan.

Yuichi said he’d been heavily inspired by our book Shelter. He was making a movie called Simplife and wanted to interview me.

Here’s the result, 3 minutes long. In the last part, I say, “I like to tell people what I see going on in the world…” Yeah!

I’ve had a lot of Japanese people come here — media, builders, artists, publishers —  in recent years and they’ve all been wonderful — kindred spirits of the Pacific Ocean.
