From the folks who publish graphic arts magazines Print, How and industrial design magazine I.D., comes the book Home: New Directions In World Architecture And Design. Not unlike those monthly publications, Home is hefty at almost 600 pages. It features a selection, by a panel of international consultants, of "more than 120 of today's architecturally significant homes" from around the world. The book is said to offer an insider's perspective, "drawing on examples from history through to current trends" and includes floor plans, section views and perspectives from the architects who designed the homes. It's also a reference with an "Architects A-Z" section, "an easy-reference historical guide to the architects who have shaped architectural trends and design". Hardcover, 575 pages, well illustrated, $37.80 at Amazon.
