Description

There are billions of doors around the world and, just like people, each and every one is different.

Doors are a barrier between reality and imagination, and the portal between private and public. And therein lies their sense of mystery: without opening them we will never know what or who lies behind them. Our curious nature leads us to wonder what is beyond, and we only have what we see in front of us to go by, but take a closer look and you will discover that every door tells its own story. Whether it’s the particular shade of paint, the texture of the finish, an extravagant knocker, the plant that scrambles around the frame or an elegantly turned handle, every door reveals the secret of its past, its present, its culture and the person who lives behind it.

This book showcases a variety of beautiful doors chosen for their wide-ranging appeal and celebrates the everyday beauty of something we take for granted – doors.
