Feng Shui Revealed Feng Shui Revealed: An Aesthetic, Practical Approach to the Ancient Art of Space Alignment

The book presents 14 of Chin's high-end feng shui consultations, from a SoHo loft to a Frank Lloyd Wright house in the woods. The treatments of the various "problems," such as poor room placement, sharp corners, and the constricting feeling of overhead beams, are well explained in terms more architectural than geomantic, and are applicable to any home, no matter how modest. The book's final section is a set of "cookbook" feng shui problems and cures, such as mirrors to counter the negative energy of a blank wall, flowers to counter unfriendly feelings in the office, and birdbaths to welcome wildlife and give a sense of tranquility. The serene photography gives this the delicious feel of a luxurious coffee-table book.

New Cottage Home The New Cottage Home
Jim Tolpin Hardcover - 224 pages (May 1998) Taunton Pr Dimensions (in inches): 0.79 x 10.29 ISBN: 1561582298

It takes only a drive through any typical American subdivision to confirm that in recent decades the average house has grown in size, narrowed in style, and shrunk in vision. Jim Tolpin's The New Cottage Home represents a return to a previous school of thought about living space: that it should be no larger than is needed, conservative of resources, rich in detail-- in short, that it should pay homage to honest architecture and fine craftsmanship, not to conspicuous consumption. The 30 cottage homes pictured, all recently built, have the slightly unfair advantage of almost magically beautiful locations, but each has a unique character and many cottage-style nooks and crannies: the converted island pump house with sod roof, the 600-square-foot woodland temple, the salvage-built house on the Kansas prairie, the off-the-grid shingled hilltop house built to take advantage of natural light. Tolpin does an excellent job of pulling together the elements of each that make it a cottage and make it appealing. In his own words, "These houses seem to call as much to the heart as to the head, enriching us more with the highs of nature than with the highs of technology. These are the new American cottages that embody the ancient storybook dream, and the kind of homes that many of us have always dreamed of living in."

This book takes a fresh look at the wider issues of design and industrial culture throughout the world, showing the powerful cultural, social, and technological forces at work. 65 color illustrations.
