There’s a new book out that lifts the veil on the English home, and it’s awesome.
Called Living in History: Engish Homes Through Time with a Gentle Twist to Perspective, it’s a lovely coffee-table-sized book that explores the history of the architecture of the English home. It does this through real pictures and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations of every type of house in England.
The author and chief illustrator in the book is Eli Ofir, a very talented artist with an eye for details. The book is broken up into the various eras of British architecture, i.e. Tudor, Georgian, Victoria, etc. It also explains them, defines them, and demonstrates their characteristics. It’s a valuable insight into the history of the English home.
The book also features a ton of historical research from co-authors Rosalind Chislett and Jane Davidson, two experts in the history of English homes. The descriptions are not too long and are very informative. It’s a great quick read, especially if you want to admire the artwork and not focus on the words.
All in all, it’s an excellent exploration of the architectural history of the English home and a must for any interested Anglophile.
