I have been looking forward to the publication of Richard Olsen’s book Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth-Friendly Home Design, and it has now been released by Rizzoli. Richard contacted me years ago during the book’s early stages, so it was great to hear from him today and see these pictures. Note that the images are all copyright Richard Olsen/Rizzoli, reprinted here by permission.
Read this great review in Architectural Record, and there’s also been nice coverage in New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine’s Time Style & Design, and the New York Journal of Books. Richard tells me that British Columbia is an important part of his geographic coverage. I am looking forward to my copy.
Buy the book! Handmade Houses: A Century of Earth-Friendly Home Design. And check out this post on Richard’s blog for the book.
For handmade house nerds, some previous posts on handmade houses (one of which triggered Richard’s first email to me) are here:
