At some point as kids, we all threw a blanket over two chairs and called it our clubhouse—who ever said the fun needs to stop? Artistic duo Grackle + Pigeon hereby declares that growing up is optional, and presents you with twenty-plus artisanal blanket forts to activate the imagination and stoke the childlike wonder inside. Perfect for all ages, each project features a mix of photography and instructions to guide the way, including:

  • Bears Love Breakfast (a rustic camping fort)
  • Ground Control (David Bowie–themed, with a moonlike glow to suit every Starman and –woman)
  • Om Shanti (perfect for vinyasa or a leisurely nap)
  • Garden Party (a backyard pièce de résistance worthy of a [tiny] wedding reception)

This gorgeous little book will inspire you to build cozy hideouts in living rooms, yards, work spaces, and the great outdoors. Hit pause on modern-day living, and take refuge inside a world of your own creation.
