Tiny People Reading Tiny Homes Mini Book

Bill Newlin sent me a link to an article in yesterday’s New York Times covering an exhibit of 950 miniature books at the Grolier Museum in Manhattan, which got me looking into the many pictures we have of kids reading one of Tiny Homes mini books.

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,
    These are my kids. I was so surprised and pleased to see them on your blog! What an honor. I remember when I sent the picture a few years back. The kids love those tiny books. Heck, my husband and I do too. I think I mentioned this in the comments before, but when my son saw your picture he said, “Lloyd looks mischievous…” The kids are total fans! You’re always up to something and we love reading about it. All the best to you.
