At first we were a bit distracted by H.O.U.S.E., a book promising to highlight thirty-five of the most innovative and spectacularly real and wacky homes around the world. Why? Because there aren’t any actual photos of these real homes — only illustrations. But once we started flipping through the colorful pages we completely saw this book’s appeal: it’s fun and funny because it doesn’t have real photos in it!
Taking what could have just been a standard, usual way of presenting the world’s most unique houses, you get to see these homes described by an artist, and the homes are treated with bold color and humor! Though you might catch yourself googling a few of these to see the actual photo of a home, you’ll enjoy flipping through these pages to see how these homes are presented. Great for kids and adults, this would be a very colorful book to include on your coffee table or in your design book collection!
