Home by Carson Ellis
Influential artist Carson Ellis makes her solo picture-book debut with a beautifully imaginative tribute to the many possibilities of home.
Home might be a house in the country, a flat in the city, or even a shoe. Home resides on the road or the sea, in the realm of myth, or in the space where the artist created this book. A soulful meditation on the concept of home and a visual treat that invites many return visits, this loving look at the places where people live marks the picture-book debut of Carson Ellis, famed illustrator of the Wildwood series and artist for the indie folk-rock band The Decemberists.
An imaginative, stunningly illustrated idea of what a home can be, full of intriguing characters and locales both familiar and exotic.
The first picture book both written and illustrated by Carson Ellis.
Carson Ellis is well-known as the illustrator for the albums of her husband's indie band, The Decemberists.
