About Lloyd Kahn

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).

    Sight & Vision…
    I’ve been a working artist for at least 40 yrs. I began to lose my central eyesight in my twenties, due to a genetic form of Macular Degeneration. This condition is a form of non correctable “partial blindness”, but is also defined as low vision or visually impaired and legally blind. Although this affected my eyesight it pushed my creative vision to new depths, requiring me to change from being a realist illustrator to an assemblage sculptor.
