Best Treehouse Inspiration Book by Best Treehouse Author April 12 2009
By G. Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Peter Nelson's treehouse books are always inspiring, voyeuristic, and FUN. This is his best book yet. Not a How-to (he's done those) although he does briefly touch on the latest in treehouse engineering and there is a wealth of contact information in the back of the book.

The photos are very clear, well composed, and this time we get a lot of views and angles. His last book was a bit stingy with the photos, leaving me wanting another page of pictures. This book gives it to us. The design quality of the treehouses featured is also unsurpassed. He doesn't just show us money-no-object projects but also beautiful aeries built by a homeless man or salvage junkies. The book's continuity comes from all of these treehouses being gorgeous works of art built with an artists eye. It seems that by placing a house in a tree, it frees the imagination (and the voice in your head who says "you can't do that"). More passionate architectural creativity is in this book than you can find anywhere else.

Pete narrates the book, letting the reader in on the impetus behind the owner's flight of fancy. His words add to the visual story and brings some details into focus.

The best Treehouse Design Book ever printed. Should be in every library.

More Food for Dreamers Aug. 4 2009
By Rara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
My love of tree houses has been life long, and since discovering Nelson's first tree house book some time ago, I have had to own each subsequent one. His newest book does not disappoint, and feeds the imagination with vivid photos and inspiring narrative. Although this is not a how-to book, Nelson does provide insight into how the tree houses, shown in a variety of cultures and settings, are designed and constructed. As a coffee table book, you won't find a more beautiful one.

dark photography July 10 2011
By snowcrave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
It is always fun to look at tree houses. A long time tree (sometimes) tree dweller and dreamer of being a tree dweller, I was really excited about this book. While there are lots of great examples to dream about, and hope to see someday. The photos do the book a disservice. They are often dark, and make the details hard to see. At first I thought it was the lighting in the room but have looked at this book under several lighting conditions now, with the same results: frustration at having to squint to see the detail. The photos would have benefited from better lighting technology. None the less, this is a fun book for those who love tree houses, living closer to nature, and alternative architecture.

By P. Spillane - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this as a gift for my architect husband. It speaks to the child in all of us and is loaded with gorgeous photographs of treehouses designed by the author. An inspiring, adventuresome leap into the world of possibilities.
