Climb into this trove of tree houses and enjoy a new perspective on the world. 50 treehouses from around the world which cover all different styles, from romantic to modern. Every house is depicted in several photos as well as one illustration by artist Patrick Hruby from Los Angeles (who also created the book's cover artwork).
The idea of climbing a tree for shelter, or just to see the earth from another perspective, is surely as old as humanity. Tree houses are chronicled in ancient civilizations and their lore crosses through the history of every part of the world where trees grow. This stunningly-illustrated study offers a tour of the best tree houses in the world, some designed by architects, others the work of unknown craftsmen. A teahouse, a restaurant, a hotel, a playhouse for children, or a perch from which to contemplate life; the tree house can take as many forms as the imagination can offer. In times of concern for sustainability and ecological responsibility, the tree house may also be the ultimate symbol of life in symbiosis with nature.
Whether rustic or contemporary in style, tree houses make the most of space. With great photography it's a terrific coffee table book and a great gift for campers,or for the intrepid, adventurous traveller. A stylish fun-loving book and a great read!
