From his Domebooks to Shelter, Homework, and Builders Of The Pacific Coast, the guy’s almost the Don Corleone of Independent Housing (A longhaired Don on a Skateboard), so I was thrilled to see this desktop layout photo Lloyd had on his blog http://www.lloydkahn.com
Upon close inspection I realized “Wait a sec, dead center, semi-obscured…..those are art clips from MY book!’. How cool….
The page half-shown is from a sketch/design in my book that was/is titled “Down At Big Lee’s Swamp”- a glass-sided, small porched, cabin in the woods….loosely named after a Paul-Bunyan of a guy (the “The Backwoods Terminator”, as we call him) who lives up near my VT camp/cabin.
Anyway, now I’m even MORE excited to see the eventual release of this book. I’m sure Lloyd won’t disappoint.
ALSO- MEGA-THANKS to PEG PATTON and THE FRONT STREET BOOK SHOP in SCITUATE, MA for having me over there to speak to readers, drink wine by a downtown campfire, and to be able to give a live demonstration on redneck/salvage constructed windows for sheds, shacks, and cabins… Good people, good vibe, good questions….and a good view- right by the town’s boat-laden harbor.
I had a blast, thanks to the twenty or so people who came out, and if you’re ever in the South Shore Massachusetts area, her bookstore is just LOADED with charm and character, carries some great micro-architecture books, and she’s a real-deal, incredibly friendly gem to the world of independent literature. May her store have a long, long, run. We need more of ’em out there like “The Front Street”.
