Author, photographer, and pioneer of the green architecture movement Lloyd Kahn is a man of many talents. His next venture is to visit Corvallis’ Grass Roots Bookstore on Thursday, July 31 at 7 p.m., where his new book, Tiny Homes on the Move, will be featured.

Tiny Homes on the Move chronicles modern travelers who live in homes, many of which are handcrafted by their owners, that are compact and mobile on wheels or in the water, such as vans, pickup trucks, buses, trailers, sailboats, and houseboats. The book features stories, descriptions, and over 1,100 color photos of movable shelters that should inspire all summer adventurers.

Tiny Homes on the Move is a book about 21st century nomadic living, about homes that are not just tiny, but that also move—on wheels or in the water. This is a continuation of Shelter Publications’ 40 years of publishing books on owner-built housing, starting with Shelter in 1973,” Kahn said.

Kahn is the founding editor-in-chief of Shelter Publications, Inc., and the former editor of Whole Earth Catalog. Shelter Publications specializes in books on architecture as well as health and fitness. Kahn has published many books exploring creativity in architecture, including Domebook 1, Domebook 2, Shelter, Home Work: Handbuilt Shelter, Builders of the Pacific Coast, and Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter. He has also published various books on health and wellness and is an avid surfer, long boarder, and paddle boarder.
