Book Artist Edward H. Hutchins believes that: everyone has a story to tell; that the best books are not mass-produced; and that when one let's one's imagination soar, the most amazing creations are possible utilizing, often, fairly inexpensive materials. Thus was born - Guerilla Bookmaking.

Ed Hutchins has produced at least over eighty books between the years 1968 and 2005 (perhaps more - gleaned from several sources). Always creative and frequently carrying a social justice message, Ed's books charm and delight. His own web site offers a few books which are still in print; this volume, extolling the manifold delights of - well, buildings - is out of print and we are pleased to offer it here. This volume inscribed by the book artist thus: "For Judith / Thanks for / building our friendship / over the years! / Hugs - / Ed / 8-92".
