Kem Hinton

Parnassus Books welcomes Kem Hinton author of Seablets.


For three decades, Kem Hinton has documented the humorous sayings of his business partner, Seab Tuck. Beginning in the mid-1980s, Kem and others in their design studio of Tuck-Hinton Architects noticed Seab’s quirky, often hilarious malapropisms, including phrases such as “I had a sense of ray,” “Our height is too low,” and “She was a sheep in fox clothing.”

In this modest book, you’ll find over 700 quotes, evidence of a talented architect’s ability to keep the laughs coming and proof of his contributions to making their office environment just plain fun.

Kem Hinton is an architect, urban designer, author and visual artist in Nashville. He was raised in Murfreesboro and received his professional education at the University of Tennessee, University of Pennsylvania, and the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Kem was the lead designer of the Tennessee Bicentennial Capitol Mall in Nashivlle, and he authored a book on this commemorative urban park entitled A Long Path: The Search of a Tennessee Bicentennial Landmark. He is a member of the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows. Kem and his wife have one grown son.
