Great Circles: How to Build your own Dome Home. By Rupert and Felicity Glover.
The Geodesic Dome created by Buckminster Fuller has proved to be one of the best alternatives to the modern house. Made of polythene and wood, the dome combines low cost, approx $1,500, with easy building. This book sets out simple to follow instructions on all aspects of building, including choosing a site, ventilation, sealing and windows. It also provides such incidental information as the fact that the hanging of a speaker, face up to the roof, creates a stereo effect. Published by Alister Taylor the book is almost worth the $3.25 it costs.
