Read in February, 2012

With elaborate, meticulously detailed bas-relief paper collages, If You Lived Here is a fascinating look at different types of dwellings from around the world. While the text is helpful for better understanding the type and location of the dwellings, it's really the illustrations that are the stars here.

The cover illustration of the Greek island dwellings was so striking that it brought back vivid memories of my time in Greece. It is quite apparent from the heart and thoughtfulness that Giles Laroche put into these illustrations that he loves to travel.
