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!
