About the Author: In 1968 Lloyd Kahn worked as Shelter editor for the Whole Earth Catalog. In 1973, he published the oversized book Shelter, which went on to sell over 250,000 copies. In 2004, Kahn published Home Work: Handbuilt Shelter - the long-awaited sequel to Shelter - and in 2008, Builders of the Pacific Coast. Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter was published in 2012. Tiny Homes on the Move is the 5th book in this series. Kahn and his wife Lesley live and work in a small coastal town in Northern California.
About the Book: Tiny Homes on the Move chronicles 21st-century nomads -- people who inhabit homes that are compact and mobile, either on wheels or in the water. In photos and stories, this fascinating book explores modern travelers who live in vans, pickup trucks, buses, trailers, sailboats, and houseboats that combine the comforts of home with the convenience of being able to pick up and go at any time. With over 1,000 color photos accompanying the stories and descriptions of these moveable sanctuaries, this is a valuable and inspirational book for anyone thinking outside the box about shelter (publisher marketing).
