About the Author

John Lane (1930–2012) was a painter, writer and educator. He was Chairman of the Dartington Hall Trust, founding director of the Beaford Centre and instrumental in the creation of Schumacher College. His other books include Timeless Beauty, The Living Tree: Art and the Sacred, A Snake’s Tail Full of Ants: Art, Ecology and Consciousness and Devon’s Churches.


In keeping with its title, this is a straightforward book, beautifully illustrated, well ordered, with clear directions and useful references. What is more, it is written without cant, and, most importantly, not by a zealot but by a practitioner. Only someone who has sought to practise the simple life would know its detail, the small matters that make it so.
*David Cadman, Resurgence*
