Tree Houses: Fairy Tale Castles in the Air edited by Philip Jodidio; illustrations by Patrick Hruby
Tree Houses is the newest contribution to an already extensive collection of books on the subject of tree-based architecture for grown-ups. Like all books by Taschen, this title is the largest of the genre by size and weight and makes for an imposing coffee table tome. It features 50 tree houses from around the world, including vernacular ethnic structures and modern architectural follies for the wealthy. Each house receives a treatment with a project brief and a half-dozen images. The most noteworthy tree house architects and designers are all here in colorful illustration and three languages.
