Published by the Vancouver Art Gallery, 'Cabin Fever' traces the course of the cabin in North America - from the simple architecture of colonial settlements to contemporary interpretations - showing how this humble typology has been appropriated for its symbolic value and helped shape a larger cultural identity. Acknowledging the cabin's pervasive influence, the book offers a historical survey of the typology over the past three centuries. Comprising a selection of notable literature, excerpted texts, and iconic images, its three parts (Shelter, Utopia, Porn) map the formal evolution of the cabin typology within a changing set of social and cultural desires.
