  13. Interesting topic, with all the digital misery we get thrown at us. Using a bird for fishing instead of a sonar.

Got another interesting book for you, rather corpulent though. The Japanese House Heinrich Engel Pub. Charles E. Tuttle (Japan) ISBN 0-8048-0304-8 This was my first introduction to Japanese building. It has some very interesting joinery in it, which shows the genius of Japanese carpentry - I used some to make a closet/cupboard.
