      I found the following on California Futures Network -- Land Use Lines weekly
      posting; pardon, if someone else has already mentioned these books or if
      they really don't address car-free living, Rick

      "TWO NEW BOOKS

      A Town Primarily for People

      In his new book, Architect Gene Zellmer is advocating a radical new concept
      in urban design, which would deemphasize the automobile, and make both urban
      and rural amenities directly available to town residents. "A Town Primarily
      for People" describes the desirable future and historic features of this
      entirely new type of town. With drawings and text the book describes how it
      can be done, and how it reduces impacts on water, air, transportation and
      farmland; even within existing historic downtowns. According to Zellmer, the
      town actually functions in harmony with nature, like a living organism.
      $31.94, includes shipping.
