Van Life

Oct 24, 2017

Living in a van down by the river used to be a bad thing. Now, over two decades since Chris Farley’s SNL skit aired, calling your van a home is a celebrated (and potentially lucrative) lifestyle. This is thanks in large part to Foster Huntington. Back in 2011 Huntington left his high powered fashion industry position New York and went out to travel North America in his van – recording it all on his Tumblr. 6 years later, Van Life: Your Home on the Road, is a survey of the trend he helped spark.

Unlike Huntington’s first book, which mainly focused on his personal experience traveling in a van, this new hardback published by Black Dog and Leventhal offers a look inside the lives of other van-lifers. Flipping through this hardcover’s 256 full-color pages provides readers a peek into the lives of those who decided to stray from the beaten path. Each van has its own history, intricacies, and unique personality that makes it distinct from others. As a result, the book comes across almost as a series of automotive portraiture. An ideal addition to any library.
