Review: Home

One look at the cover of Home, illustration aficionados, and you're pretty much assured deliciousness inside. Who could resist taking a peek when faced with such an eclectic and charming array of homey options?

And yes, they are truly gorgeous.

Carson Ellis takes us on a tour of the world, and other worlds, in this beautiful book, in search of all kinds of places we call home.

It might be a flat in an industrial area of a grand city. It might be a majestic sailing ship or a wigwam. It could well be a palace or an underground lair, the hollow of a tree, under the sea, or an upturned tea cup in a magical garden.

With earthy yet vibrant, modern yet whimsical illustrations, this is one lust-worthy picture book. Featuring Norse Gods, bees, Babushkas and Japanese businessmen, both adults and kids will delight in discovering the many nooks settled by creatures all over our world and beyond.

Wherever it is, and whomever lives there, it's most certainly home.
