[Current] Favourite Book

50/60/70:Iconic Australian Houses - author Karen McCartney / photographer Michael Wee

Illustrated throughout with evocative images by internationally renowned photographer Michael Wee - author Karen McCartney has gathered together 15 significant and influential houses from the 1950s through to the 1970s, most of which have never before been comprehensively documented. Each is by a different architect and combines outstanding architectural principles with an interior that remains in keeping with the integrity of the house.

At the best of times I fall head over heels in love with books, but even more so when it comes to any book that covers the following key areas - design, architecture, trends and within an historical context! And Wow - does this book - 50/60/70:Iconic Australian Houses - have it! Plus if it can get any better than that, it is authored by the ever stylish and in-the-know, Karen McCartney (I do think she is amazing), who by day, is also the editor of interior/ exterior bible - 'Inside Out' magazine.
Take a 'Palatial' hint and get yourself this book is it a lavish feast for your senses and an Australian history lesson in iconic design style to boot!

50/60/70:Iconic Australian Houses ($69.95, Murdoch Books) available at all good booksellers.
