The Book of Houses
Triune Books | 1973 | ISBN: 085674025X | English | 150 pages | PDF | 27.4 MB
A fascinating pictorial exploration of people's homes across the world - discovering what it means to live in a nomad's tent, in a Roman villa, in a medieval town-house, in a Cardinal's palazzo, in a Chinese mandarin's residence - seeing how keeping comfortably cool or warm, and the urge to display one's power, wealth and importance, and the need to protect one's family from enemies (or from bad ghosts!) created so many forms of house at different times and in different climates.
