Truly a pleasure: folk art and 1960s/70s documentary,
This review is from: Handmade Houses: A Guide to the Woodbutcher's Art (Paperback)
There is something warm and peaceful about this book. It is a transporter, ready to take you back to Northern California or Oregon of the 1970s. It is folk art and naked children--a time before Martha Stewart. It is an architecture of freedom and spontaneity, earthiness, and autonomy. Here people have put together woody structures of the mind and captured in form the feeling that I remember so well from my Northern California childhood in the 70s.
The book is just photos--no building instructions, no pretense to being authoritative or comprehensive; art homes which caught the authors' eyes.
