House conversions from the 70’s make for a cute little book

Converted into Houses Converted into Houses by Charles A. Fracchia

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Its exactly what you would expect if you pick up the book. Its a cute thin little book with a short paragraph and a couple pages of images about each house. The decor is very much of its time, but still a fun little book to keep on the shelf and flip through every once in a while.

Ice House Pyramids

The Empty City The Empty City by Andrew Looney

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Fun silly little book. Its not anything too special, and the writing is just ok. But it is fun and worth a read for people who are into the Icehouse pyramid games. The story is basically just about four dudes that play the Icehouse game and the world that happens around and happens to them. Its fun in that it just focuses on mundane life in all its glorious weirdness and this novel is an interesting example of how fiction can actually be a muse to jump start a creative endeavor which has now turned into Looney Labs.
