Great little book. Fantastic pictures and short stories that give light to the art of the outhouse, it's lore & personalization. A fitting tribute to an often overlooked piece of amreicana.

This is a wonderful little book, full of fantastic pictures of all kinds of designs, styles, and comfort levels of outhouses. I bought this book primarily to get design inspiration for the revamping of my own dilapidated outhouse, and I haven't been disappointed. Whether you want a simple outhouse or an elaborately decorated one, all kinds of design possibilities exist in this book. Plus, it's just plain fun reading and to see the joy and pride that some folks take in their outhouses.

I saw this for sale in the gift shop on the Alaska Marine Highway, so I went on my iPhone and bought it here used for MUCH less before we lost service. Totally worth a couple of bucks.
