Title: If You Lived Here: Houses of the World
Author: Giles Laroche
From Adobe style homes in Mexico, to snow topped Chalets in France, each page spread of If You Lived Here focuses on a different type of home. Each home is illustrated through a collage art form known as bas-relief. The images are made by layering cut paper on top of each other, creating deep texture and intricate landscapes. Along with these intricate illustrations, there are various facts about each style of home, including the materials from which they were built, the location where they were found, as well as the time period when they were most popular. A world map on the last page displays where each type of home is located.
