There are a number of illustrations throughout the book and although hand drawn, they're perfectly clear I think this adds to the subject matter - after all, we're talking about getting away from rigidness and straight lines so no need for exact architectural drawings!
Although I've never met Ianto, I've already found him very likeable and look forward to reading his book about rocket stoves. The Hand-Sculpted House is a wonderful read - highly recommended and has inspired me to one day build my own home out of cob, although at this stage, I've not got past my miniature clay mockup!
Get the book, get the land and get building!
