Monocle Book of Homes

 
Giles & Pickard, London, 2021, cloth edition, $65. This is a different take on the typical HOME book, and a tribute of sorts to the work that Monocle does and is best at. It is not a laying out of houses to peruse - it is a laying out of elements of what makes a house. Elements that are the difference, of what you see, and what you hope. It is a visual show of TYPES. The handcrafted home, the mountainside, the terraced townhouse, the island escape, the art-filled place, the urban, the self-sufficient, the classic, the brutalist bolthole - 20 of them in all, presented in the iconography of what makes each an icon. For each entry, selected from all over the world and all over the years, it is the details of the paradigm they are after, the ineffable sense of the literal type. To end, they go to the details - facades and doors, gardens and fittings, lighting and shelves. And a final list, of their 100 favorites things that would always help, from carafe to bench to oil lamp. A good, healthy, helpful book.
