Description

Cabins and Camps offers an intimate view of mountain homes and log cabins from New York's Adirondacks to the coast of California. Never before photographed, these rustic retreats aim for the perfect balance between luxurious American home and comfortable isolated getaway. Many of the homeowners are advocates of contemporary rustic artists, and their homes feature handcrafted one-of-a-kind furniture pieces. Cabins and Camps includes a full gallery of extraordinary new rustic creations from a handful of the top rustic artists in America today. This book illustrates just what a little "hideaway" in the mountains can become-a place of natural honesty, refuge, and peace. Ralph Kylloe received his Ed.D. from Boston University and has taught at the university level for many years. He is a leading authority on rustic furniture, and owner of the Ralph Kylloe Gallery at Lake George in New York's Adirondack Mountains. His previous books include Rustic Artistry for the Home, Rustic Traditions, Cabin Collectibles, and Rustic Furniture Makers.show more
