The contributions of Bill Moss to mid-twentieth century American culture were manifold. First changing the world of camping with the invention of the Pop tent, he went on to shake the world of fabric architecture with the many forms that we now take for granted.This gorgeous book chronicles Moss’ creative life from his early years until his death in 1994. Its appeal is broad as it encompasses many aspects of our cultural history―from architecture and design to biography to the complete transformation of the camping experience. Moss, Inc. was engaged in the creative economy long before most people used the term. It was also known as one of the most socially responsible businesses in the country, a reputation that held fast through its sale by Marilyn Moss in 2001.
