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).

One Response to Leonard Cohen with Phil Spector, “Death of a Ladies Man” 1977

  1. Hey Lloyd thanks, that was really good. I will listen to that often now. I miss Lenny a lot. He was there throughout my life. Like a marker. I will have a late night drink sometimes and play “Dance me to the end of Love”.


    His voice changed and aged well over the years. I guess that even though you are my senior by 17 years, we both watched and listened to him throughout his wonderful and long life and career.
    Thanks again.
