Once passed the first stretch of the Christmas, and open gifts that has brought us the Santa Claus, Santa Claus, the uncle of Nadal or Olentzero, according to the country or the region of Spain where we are now thinking about shopping for the Three kings. For me, lover of both books and decoration, there is no better gift than a good Book of decoration. So I’m going to recommend you, to give (or give away), the book all about the House of journalist and Catalan historian, specialized in architecture, Anatxu Zabalbeascoa.
While it is a rigorous and well documented book, the reading is very entertaining, something which, unfortunately, is not very frequent in this type of publications. The author goes through the main rooms of a House (bathroom, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, garden and living room), to show us their evolution throughout history. In its pages not only meet the architecture and the Interior design but also the sociology or anthropology in an interdisciplinary study (repeat: charming) that helps us to learn about everyday life and the way of living (and enjoy dwellings) of our ancestors, but also our.
The book is accompanied by a superb drawings of Riki white, created by way of exception for the occasion, serving as visual support to the excellent content. It is, of a perfect gift for all lovers of the decoration and of the Interior design and, in general, for anyone who wants to dig a little deeper into the history of the House as an entity, because it is always good to know where we came from to know where we are going.
