for Practical Permanent Elven Architecture, Follies, Fairy Gardens and other Virtuous Ventures
by Peter Harris
" This book is mostly about the joy of ferrocement as a medium for the creation of durable beauty. The joy of having a concrete means to realise beautiful dreams that would otherwise be impossible without frightening amounts of money. Dreams of natural shapes, fantastical, whimsical, inspirational, sublime. Fountains, domes, follies, grottos, garden borders, birdbaths, ponds, pots,sculptures steps, bridges, boats, towers...."
"The joy of ferrocement, like all joys, takes a little knowledge, provided here, but mostly the courage to actually, physically try it. Your very first try can be usable, beautiful and above all act as a bridge to all other possibilities that will suddenly open up when you realise how easy it is." - from Fantastic Ferrocement
