"Draw Me a House" is a playbook for budding architects and anyone interested in the built environment. Illustrated by Thibaud Herem, it celebrates the primary delights of architecture, inviting people of all ages to color in, think about, doodle and engage with basic architectural elements. Both educational and entertaining, "Draw Me a House" takes the reader on a journey through architectural styles from Gothic church spires to contemporary eco-design, and out the other side to the world of outright fantasy. From completing the columns on the Parthenon to thinking up an alternative top to the Chrysler Building; from drawing a deluxe doghouse to designing a transport system for the year 2040, this book will serve as a springboard for the imagination--a fresh and playful source of stimulation and inspiration. Thibaud Herem's beautiful drawings have a warmth and a humor that jumps off the page, and the ideas have an equal lightness of touch. Printed on a heavy, creamy uncoated paper that begs to be doodled upon and colored in, and sporting a laser-cut cover that highlights its tactile appeal, "Draw Me a House" is a book that will delight children and adults alike.show more

Review quote

In an era of Dwell Modern, Danish style and industrial chic, hip parents are looking for hip products to entertain their kids, whilst trying hard not to buy into gross commercialism and mass branding. Draw Me a House, written and illustrated by Thibaud Herem, a French-born illustrator based in London, is one of the most engaging in the new world of "interactive" coloring books. But by interactive not meaning a stylus and a screen, but a pencil and a page. Part coloring book, part sketch pad, educational and inspirational, Herems book introduces children to the worlds of architecture and design through his signature simple illustration, and then encourages them to explore their own imagination on paper.--Sophie De Rakoff"Huffington Post" (05/31/2012)show more
