As I meandered through the first few pages of Home I thought, yup very pretty. And then I got to the underground lair home and the shoe house and it all just got very very great. Those of you who have hung out with me for a while will know about my penchant for a touch of crazy, and Home manages to joyfully incorporate this wacky element seamlessly.

“This is the home of a Slovakian duchess.

This is the home of a Kenyan blacksmith.

This is the home of a Japanese businessman.IMG_1899

This is the home of a Norse god.”

This illustrations are magnificent, the sort you pore over for hours, discussing in great detail with small people.

I have top to toe love for this beautiful book.

Check out Home from Auckland Libraries.

Or buy Home from Fishpond.
