We ran out of superlatives when we finally got our mitts on this beautifully composed book of homes by Carson Ellis.
With delicately illustrated spreads, each one wildly different from the last, you can’t help but get lost in each new world.
We are invited to share many homes of a rich and varied range of occupants.
From a Moonian’s (someone/something who inhabits the moon) home, to the remote settlement of a tibetan monk, ‘Home‘ covers every resting place imaginable and then some.
It gives us an insight into a plethora of places others call ‘home’ and serves as a reminder that of how deeply diverse our dwellings are and how rich our cultures.
In this, her first solo picture book offering, Ellis incorporates an eclectic mix of abodes.
Within the same spread we are invited in to the mansion of a Slovakian Duchess and just next door we are greeted to the Kenyan blacksmith’s shack, such clearly opposing places to live, yet the place both sets of occupants call home.
We adore the way this book unites us in the places where we find comfort and highlights to us all how different they can be.
