"Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth Friendly Home Design (Rizzoli; $45), by Richard Olsen, a former editor at Architectural Digest, is a breezy history of the genre, tracing its roots from Henry Thoreau to Carl Jung, and from Helen and Scott Nearing, whose mid-century subsistence living experiment in Vermont and Maine prefigured the ’70s-era back-to-the-landers, to Lloyd Kahn, once the shelter editor of The Whole Earth Catalog, and the dean of the hand-built movement." ~New York Times

What Richard Olsen has assembled is an attractive and engaging book, suitable for coffee table, bookshelf, or drawing board. Through interviews, research, and the collaboration of his photographers Lucy Goodhart and Kodiak Greenwood, he has created a beautifully tactile storybook about a passion to build.” ~New York Journal of Books

“This tale is a lot more than hippies and hot tubs, however. Olsen provides a thorough history of the owner-built, woodbutcher movement from places like Big Sur, California, and Prickly Mountain, Vermont. And he addresses the sources of handcraft construction: Buddhist architecture of Japan, Norwegians cabins, Sea Ranch in California, Gaudi, Maybeck, and Jung, to name a few). Works from Europe and Australia provide an international context.” ~Architectural Record

“If you are like me, interested in environmentally friendly design and unique style in the home, you will appreciate this book.”

Amazing & inspiring book! 18. Juli 2012
Von A. Bower - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book was sent to me in France as a gift, by my father, Henry "Sandy" Jacobs, whose home is featured in it. I find paging through it to be as soothing as listening to a favorite song, or sitting on the side of a stream peacefully flowing by. This images are remarkable, the quality of the paper of high quality for those (like me) sensitive to the subtleties of texture, and the creativity in the home designs and writing are just extraordinary. I grew up in Marin County where many of these homes are located, and seeing many of them here, including my fatherls and those not in Marin, on such an intimate level makes me feel like I am actually there breathing in the color, the harmony, the peaceful aesthetics and energy of each location. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in design, nature, creativity, aesthetics, art, or who just would like a little mini-vacation and inspiration.

Handmade Homes 3. November 2012
Von A. Anderson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In a time before building inspectors roamed the earth, when dogs rode in the back of pickups, you impressed your neighbors with the quality of your compost and not what was in your portfolio. You offered tea you just picked, not one you bought online. To me, this book brought up memories of my first time hitch hiking up the Big Sur Coast, discovering the Big Sur Inn and Esalen by accident not because of a Yelp review. If your idea of a finished floor is recycled from forest storm fallen trees or an old building full of old stories about to end up in the landfill, installed by your own two hands and not from an un-named box store then this book has your name on it. If you find it appealing to complete your own home in a short time with your own hands instead of paying over lifetime for the dreams of realtors then the dream starts here.

Eco Escapist Fantasy Come True 25. April 2012
Von Susie Bright - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Is there anything better than sitting back with a glass of red wine and oogling the finest in handmade-house-porn? -- it's like disappearing into another world where beauty, light, and organic design are your only concerns.

What I didn't expect-- and what Olsen delivers in full-- is that this a story about people, about the men and women who've created these worlds. I honestly wish I could meet every one of them. These are makers, these are dreamers who do things, characters who didn't fit in anywhere else and so they created a world that inspires everyone from the inside out. I was blown away... and I haven't looked at my own abode the same way since.

Truly Inspiring 9. April 2012
Von Juniorsuki - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I recently read a positive critique of this book in the New York Journal of Books that inspired me to pick up my copy. I have to agree with Gordon Grice. This coffee table book not only has great photography, but is enjoyably comprehensive in it's individual stories of the Handmade House in all their unique forms. Each house has a heartfelt and thoughtful portrayal of how it evolved. I appreciated the author's tenacity at capturing the spirit, dedication, and innovation to build each home. The images are rich and it was a pleasure delving into each house. Surely, in this age of ecofriendly responsibility, we should continue to be resourceful with the materials around us while expressing our individual style. Cheers to the next 100 years of the Handmade House!
