We always fall for an imaginatively-illustrated book, which is what you get with Home by Carson Ellis.
This is the first solo project from the illustrator of the Wildwood books and artist for indie band the Decemberists, taking the home (hence the title) as the main inspiration.
Whether that home is in the country, in the city, a house or an apartment, on the road or on the water, the book looks at a variety of possibilities over its 40 pages, letting the illustrations do the ‘talking’ and excite the imagination.
The book is aimed at younger children (three and up at a guess), but it’s also a book that parents will enjoying thumbing through as much as kids. Out now in hardback, it sells for £11.52.
