Description

This book is a "dream store", a collection of things we would like to browse through when thinking of our children. Ten chapters, ten families, gathering a concept of living around themselves, as expressed in their homes, and in a variety of objects charged with personal significance. Of course, the choice of objects and spaces featured here is a representative sample from among this dazzling variety. More than one hundred objects which are not mass-produced and so are filled with spontaneity and freedom, a loving subjectivity. The creators, returning to their own childhoods, become a conduit for the flow of past into future. There are as many ways to love our children as there are ways to express this love in the space we create for them.
