Growing popularity of small rustic cabins speak to our future, via our past
A luscious new book of photos, called Cabin Porn, isn’t inviting readers to hole up in the woods to look at naked bodies.
It is inviting them to look at photos about holing up in the woods.
The book is the brainchild of tech entrepreneur Zach Klein, co-founder of Vimeo, who bought some land in upstate New York in 2010 with his wife and friends. They started collecting photos of cabins as “inspiration to guide us and motivate us” to build their own. Eventually, they built some cabins on the property they call Beaver Brook, and they shared the photo collection in a popular Tumblr blog called Cabin Porn. They also opened a school at Beaver Brook, where individuals can learn to timber-frame a building from scratch in a few days.
All of that led to the Cabin Porn book, published by Little Brown, edited by Klein and aptly subtitled Inspiration For Your Quiet Place Somewhere.
