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. this sure looks like illustration style of Eric Sloane. matter of fact, I just found it on p 73 of A Reverence for Wood, published 1965. “Everybody’s Enquire Within” ???

    1. EEC has 100s if not 1000s of illustrations and doesn’t seem to credit the artists. I would assume that they had some kind of arrangemnt with Eric Sloane, because a number of other drawings look like his.
      One of my most favorite illustrators.
