Review:

...a beautiful coffee table (or workshop table!) book both inspiring and practical.

Wanek's informative and handsome new coffee-table book profiles 40 residences across the United States and Canada, most built during the past decade's straw-bale renaissance.

An attractive new book...The New Strawbale Home...[has] color photos of 41 straw-bale homes from California to Vermont and from Canada to New Mexico, and contains lively interviews with their owner-builders and architects.

About the Author:

Author and photographer Catherine Wanek organized the building of a straw bale greenhouse in 1992 and has been an advocate for straw bale construction ever since. She produced and directed the Building with Straw video series, and spent nearly five years publishing and editing The Last Straw Journal. Her first book, The Art of Natural Building, was published in 2002. Wanek lives in Kingston, New Mexico.
