We drove about 5 miles out of town, down into a riverfront valley, and I saw this beautiful little building. The two doors were open, and this guy, who I’d never seen before came out with an old tattered copy of Shelter, and he told me to crouch down in the doorway and look at the building’s framing. See this? He said? I built it from this painting (of a Mandan earth lodge) in Shelter.
Wow I thought, If Shelter inspired something like this, it’s time to do a sequel.
So Home Work, published in 2004 was born, and it featured lots of buildings inspired by Shelter.
BTW, the other day Louie said that back in the day, the saying was: “Turn on, tune in, drop out, and read Shelter.”
