If you were under the sad misapprehension that a cabin was nothing more than a timber shack in the woods then think again sunshine because publishing powerhouse TASCHEN has just dropped a weighty new tome designed to prove you wrong. It’s recently released Cabins, a 450-page epic by Philip Jodidio that explores the many and varied forms that the traditional residence of shepherds and hermits might take – from brutalist mountain-top penthouses to more traditional timber structures tucked away on the forest floor. The photography, texts and format of the book are all pretty stunning, but the entire package is tied together with luxurious vector illustrations from Cruschiform that show floor plans and idealised renderings of a selection of these superb structures.
