In the five years since the release of the international publishing success "Treehouses of the World", the community of treehouse builders has grown considerably and many more - and more intriguingly innovative - treehouses have been built around the world, from North America to Asia and many points in-between. As worldchanging and sustainable living issues become the most important challenges facing the post-millennial age, the positive power, ecological consciousness and good will that a simple treehouse represents couldn't come at a better time. Picking up where "Treehouses of the World" leaves off, "New Treehouses of the World" continues the journal-style travelogue of the world's leading treehouse designer and builder, Pete Nelson.From his fateful year-long sabbatical in Spain, where he decided to make treehouses his sole enterprise, to the founding of Treehouse Point near Seattle, Nelson documents the beginnings of this new journey alongside a bountifully illustrated record of his travels, discoveries and epiphanies.Opening with an introduction to the world of treehouses, the book quickly shifts to a discussion of state-of-the-art tree-connection technology and a detailed description of the building of a treehouse. Given new eyes with which to see this emerging phenomenon, the reader is then taken even further afield on a global tour of more than thirty-five innovative, contemporary treehouses and is treated to exclusive photographs and stories that document the world's most extraordinary arboreal architecture.

The photos are very clear, well composed, and this time we get a lot of views and angles. His last book was a bit stingy with the photos, leaving me wanting another page of pictures. This book gives it to us. The design quality of the treehouses featured is also unsurpassed. He doesn't just show us money-no-object projects but also beautiful aeries built by a homeless man or salvage junkies. The book's continuity comes from all of these treehouses being gorgeous works of art built with an artists eye. It seems that by placing a house in a tree, it frees the imagination (and the voice in your head who says "you can't do that"). More passionate architectural creativity is in this book than you can find anywhere else.
Pete narrates the book, letting the reader in on the impetus behind the owner's flight of fancy. His words add to the visual story and brings some details into focus.
The best Treehouse Design Book ever printed. Should be in every library.
The book provides the reader with background information on the builders and owners of theses structures. More importantly, it gives the reader the ability to see the vast possibilities building a treehouse holds; from an artistic structure to a completed house in a tree.
