UK at Home by Rick Smolan
Book DescriptionFrom castles to stone huts, suburban semis to houseboats, wag mansions to squats and post-modern penthouses to chocolate box cottages "UK At Home" paints a wide and fascinating picture of the places we call 'home'. Offering views from every area, social echelon and ethnicity in the UK today this wonderful collection is a visual time capsule of life at the beginning of the 21st century by the people who lived in it. From 24th-30th September tens of thousands of pictures were submitted to the UK at Home website and since then a team of leading picture editors from some of the UK leading publications have been choosing the very best of both the professional and amateur shots to appear in the book. Also included are essays on UK home-life for each chapter of the book by some of our greatest novelists, essayists and historians.With over 224 pages of houses, flats, families, possessions, pets, events and atmosphere this is a book that will not only hold up a mirror to the way we live now but offer vivid memories to look back on in later years. So whether it's a an eco-house in Wales or a Star Trek obsessive in Hinckley or three generations of a family who live next to each other you can see the truth of life in the UK right now in these pages.
