Simple Shelters: Tents, Tipis, Yurts, Domes and Other Ancient Homes - Jonathan Horning

How do you build a yurt? A Bedouin tent? What about a kathe? What's a yaranga? How about a hogan? Can you stay warm in an igloo? Are there secrets to living, thriving and surviving in specific climates? In this unique and exquisite little book, Jonathan Horning examines basic shelters from all over the world: mud-brick adobe structures, nomads' tents, travellers' quick fixes, timber frame buildings, and modern solutions, including straw bale designs and geodesic domes. WOODEN BOOKS are small but packed with information. "Fascinating" FINANCIAL TIMES. "Beautiful" LONDON REVIEW OF BOOKS. "Rich and Artful" THE LANCET. "Genuinely mind-expanding" FORTEAN TIMES. "Excellent" NEW SCIENTIST. "Stunning" NEW YORK TIMES. Small books, big ideas.
