Since the publication of Treehouses of the World, the community of treehouse builders has grown tremendously, and many more innovative treehouses have been built around the world. In New Treehouses of the World, world-renowned treehouse designer and builder Pete Nelson takes readers on an exciting, international tour of more than 35 new treehouses that reveal how treehouses are designed, constructed, and appreciated in a wide array of cultures and settings.Both beautifully photographed and thoughtfully written by Pete Nelson, New Treehouses of the World documents Nelson’s travels, discoveries, and epiphanies, and explores the ever-growing new frontier of arboreal architecture. The message that Nelson promotes is simple: As sustainable living issues stand poised to become the most important challenges facing the post-millenial age, the positive power and goodwill that a simple treehouse engenders is of greater importance than ever before.
Reviews about New Treehouses of the World (7):
I bought this as a gift for my girlfriend (we both love treehouses), and we spent quite a bit of time looking through it and getting lost in the gorgeous photos. The book's binding and paper quality is high. The text also looks very informative, though I haven't really had the chance to read it yet.
I purchased this for my dad, who loves woodworking, this book is absolutely beautiful and inspiring, great for any DIY-er to gather inspiration, any Tree house lover, or, just anyone who appreciates beautiful things. I highly recommend, makes a great Father's Day, Holiday or birthday gift!
I had been looking at treehouses on the net for quite a while before i bought this book so I was keen to see if there would be any surprises. There were. The examples shown are beautiful. I particularly value the (too) brief technical section, but wish there was more in this book. However, reading this book in conjunction with the less inspiring Home Tree Home is helpful. I do not regret buying this book but I would have liked more technical information in the texts about the houses. Because I am thirsty for technical info, i am annoyed by image captions describing pretty much what I can see for myself. But it is such a beautiful book and for anyone considering building a treehouse, I would strongly recommend it.
Beautiful Art in the Trees ! Not only is the photography in this book extraordinary, but his descriptions of the construction techniques are thorough and articulate. This is not JUST a "coffee table" book, but a great read. Pete Nelson is a true "artist". His love and knowledge of the trees comes through in every page. A person does not have to love treehouses to appreciate this wonderful book that demonstrates how we can live in harmony with nature. I hope his work continues for many years to come !!!!! I've become a genuine fan. Pete Nelson, I thank you for sharing your work with all of us!
Nice picture book, but no detail on how to do anything.
I love this book and the show
I got hooked on the tv series first and then saw this book. It is a great lesiure reading item. There is an appropriate amount of background reading to accompany the beautiful pictures. I get positive comments from our guests all the time.
An amazing book! The write-ups and the photos that go with them are of great quality! Highly recommend to anyone who enjoys the TV show! John
