Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0954707109, Paperback)Home may be a house or an apartment or a cardboard box, but it is never just that. It is not merely bricks and mortar, but rather something far more abstract, something both physical and emotional. We all personalize our spaces, invoking our own domestic aesthetics, creating an extension of ourselves, a statement of our character, our historical and social situation, and our aspirations. Home Sweet Home 102 investigates these and other notions of home through texts, found photographs, commissioned artwork and music. Jay Davis's fantastical interior-scapes are illustrated and discussed by poet Max Henry; Wolfgang Tillmans contributes his first-ever still life together with a collection of recent unpublished work; Edgar Allan Poe's essay "The Philosophy of Furniture" offers a picture of his perfect room; Art Nouveau graphic artist Aubrey Beardsley decorates in dripping curlicues; and more. A surprise, too, upon entering Home Sweet Home 102: out of its pages fall housing confetti, small cutouts of house shapes from architecture and design magazines.
