Shelter by Lloyd Kahn and Bob Easton
"Early man lived under the trees and stars. At some time he found or improvised shelter."
Maybe the most comprehensive book ever about basic, handmade, human shelters. This book investigates the evolution of simple shelters, like caves, huts and tents all the way to what DIY housing was around when the book was published in 1973. Written and compiled by Lloyd Kahn and Bob Easton, the book spoke to people who were looking for an alternative to the traps of mortgages and buying houses. The book includes how-to's on structure and material, to renovating existing buildings. Richly illustrated with photographs and drawings. The book is still a relevant compilation of information for those seeking an alternative way of life and a reminder of what used to be.
