Schuyt, Michael, Joost Elffers & George R. Collins, Fantastic Architecture: Personal and Eccentric, New York, Harry N. Abrams Inc., 1980, first edition, 4to (11.5" x 10"), HB, yellow cloth boards w/ orange embossed spine titles, black endpapers, VG+ / VG+. Boards shelfworn, lower edge of textblock has black ballpoint doodle. DJ has sm spot of white paint on front edge of spine & several speckles, slightly edgeworn.

248 pp. 386 illus., 113 full color. Wild and wonderful architecture by professionals (Gaudi, Dubuffet, Dali, Schwitters, Soleri, Buckminster Fuller, Christo) and so-called amateurs: "perhaps the most intriguing are the little-known structures built of unusual materials by unknown people: sand castles, ice sculptures, dwellings made of discarded bottles, aluminum cans, driftwood, objects from city dumps, old dolls, newspapers, and automobile tires. Also houses decorated with shells, homemade mosaics, car headlights, and painted pieces of stucco and wood. And those made in the shape of a shoe, duck, horse, whale, mushroom, or birthday cake. The aim of this book--to depict houses and surroundings of the most personal sort, built with complete freedom of fantasy, and conforming to no zoning laws and building codes--has been admirably fulfilled." Scarce in this condition.    [Book ID # 967]
