Overview

James Howard Kunstler (born October 19, 1948) is an American author, social critic, public speaker, artist, and blogger. James created these oil paintings of the landscape around Washington and Saratoga counties of New York. All were painted sur le motif.

James Howard Kunstler is best known for his books The Geography of Nowhere (1994), a history of American Suburbia and urban development, The Long Emergency (2005), and Too Much Magic (2012). In The Long Emergency, he imagines peak oil and oil depletion resulting at the end of industrialized society, forcing Americans to live in smaller-scale, localized, agrarian (or semi-agrarian) communities. He branches into a speculative fiction depiction of this future world in his book World Made by Hand.
