I love these little books showing how people (mostly New Yorkers) cope in the tinniest places imaginable. I would like to know where all their stuff is, not one knitting needle in sight, let alone a loom.
Not a how-to book, though this does contain a few peripherally-referenced concepts in the text, which is straightforward description of the owners' processes and life-styles, written in an informal, chatty-but-sophisticated voice. It is not terribly varied, focusing on New York apartments, done in the minimalist mode. Beautiful photographs. Inspiring, from a purely aesthetic perspective.

This is more a showcasing "here's what I did," rather than instructional "here's what you can do."
This book is a mix of people with a lot of money who can pay an architect to transform their space and those who have used ingenuity to make a studio apartment (for instance) into a permanent home. Full of inspiration for urban dwellers, with gorgeous photography and (almost the best part) floor plans so you can really see how they use the space.
I liked how this was laid out in amounts of square feet. The rooms were silly though, or rather the styles were. And the book, while only 10 years old were very dated.
