If You Lived Here: Houses Around the World BSW1223

US$29.95

This book explores typical houses from different time periods and different countries around the world. Readers will learn about architectural styles and geography. Laroche leads his readers through a world tour of homes describing what it would be like “If you lived here.” The fifteen indigenous houses featured in this nonfiction picture book originated from different eras and cultures, but are still in existence today.

The wide range of house types represented includes a French Chateau, a modern day cave dwelling in Spain, a Fujian Tulou (earthen dwelling) in China, a dogtrot log cabin in the Southern United States, and a decorated house of Ndebele in South Africa. The homes are portrayed through precise cut-paper illustrations accompanied by a descriptive passage about living in each house. 

如果你住在威尼斯的水上宫殿里,你得划船才能去上学;如果你住在房车里,你就可以随时随地去旅行啦;如果你住在建造在树上的小木屋里,松鼠就是你的邻居;如果你住在荷兰的漂浮屋里,你可以旋转你的房子,在同一扇窗看日出与日落;如果你住在覆盖着厚厚积雪的牧人小屋里,冬天也不会觉得寒冷……

这本书讲述了世界各地各种各样的房子,住在这里的人们,他们曾经有过或正在经历的有趣的生活。吉尔斯·拉沃什采用浮雕剪纸造型艺术,经过手绘、拼贴、上色等多个步骤,展现了一个精妙恢弘的艺术世界。每一幅画面本身,都是精细的艺术品。
