The photographs are all very beautiful, and the book is also full of great drawings and diagrams. Rolling Homes shows a number of beautiful handmade houses on wheels, some very small and cozy and some look large enough to fit in all you might ever need.
With the spirit of yesterday’s covered wagon and the mobility of today’s recreational vehicle, these individually crafted houses on wheels form an original artistic and cultural movement. They combine the do-it-yourself tradition with the American faith that “you can take it with you.” Blending art with technology and economy with style, they satisfy the desire for freedom, simplicity and self-expression.
