Format: Hardcover
This is an interesting coffee table book presenting 13 artists' homes that were built from the late 19th century to the mid 20th . They include Russel Wright, Henry Varnum Poor, Raoul Hague, Ralph Whitehead, Jane Byrd McCall, Frederic Church, Constantino Nivola in New York state, Henry Chapman Mercer, George Nakashima, Wharton Esherick in Pennsylvania, Paolo Soleri and Michael Kahn, Leda Livant in Arizona, Sam Maloof in California and Ruth and Robert Hatch in Massachusetts.

There are large well done pictures of the houses and text that explains the house and the artist themselves. There are pictures and explanations of the detail; the tiles, stairs, furniture, decoration, cookware and many times how they and the house itself were made. There is a page of visitor information for those houses that are open to the public.
This would be a book of interest to not only decorators, architects, woodworkers, but also to other artists.

A delightful concept with information at the back of the book re visiting these wonderful houses. They remind me of Frida's Blue House and Vincent's Yellow House, how the artist makes everything art, that where he or she lives represents and is also their art. There is a dreaminess, almost fantasy to these houses as well as wonderment and yes, jealously some live in such wonderfully created spaces full of personal objects and beauty. I think if you love beauty, you will love this book. Yes. This is a book for those who love beauty and objects of beauty. For the realists, I guess it gives plenty of decorative ideas but more importantly, it reveals an intimate personality, something that is sadly missing in many houses. How many people actually use art or buy art, a statue for example or frame a beautiful print if on the usual budget, really think about colour, are able to show themselves through the objects they collect and display? This book encourages us to think about our living space and more, to do something to make it real, to make it our own.

This book portrays elegant testimony to the force of creativity
emerging under any circumstances.!
The photography, an act of creativity itself.
The text likewise.

Eliphante,on page 231 was in a quiet period after Michael Kahns death
in 2007, but has had a rebirth with new directors and activities.

Wonderful detailed book. Bought as a Christmas gift for my husband. He has an extensive library of architectural books. This is a wonderful addition of a different time period and photos with interesting details in the photos not often seen. My husband had told me on more than one occasion how happy he is with this new addition to his library.
