PS SHELTER, it turns out, had a major influence on builders, and included are buildings our 1973 book inspired, so this is truly a sequel.

This book has helped me to realize that I like vernacular architecture - not the kind that comes in a box, but the kinds of homes and buildings people make using the materials they have around them without professional help - or is it-? The rest of the world knows about this type of building and much of it has been there for a thousand years or more.
Hippy vans, naked builders, Flying Concrete, Timolandia, ferrocement houses, natural houses, unnatural houses, earth houses, boat houses, tree houses, fantasy houses, a greenhouse built out of old car windshields-- more great houses and buildings than you could ever imagine, simply because many of these places are beyond imagination. This is inspiring me to go finish my secret room so I can show everybody.
There are things in this book that are guaranteed to inspire you to do something weird just because they are so interesting looking. Okay - then I'll guarantee that they will inspire me to do something weird. What's new?
At any rate, if you are looking for inspiration and want to get away from the cookie cutter look, want something different, or just want to look at pictures because you can't read, then I highly recommend that you get this book. You won't be sorry.
Looking at the price I paid at Amazon -$17.79 I couldn't believe it -list on the back is $26.95. It would have been a bargain at the high price.
