I loved this book
on 11 July 2017
I loved this book. I loved this book. I loved this book.
I don't really know much about architecture, but Alain de Botton writes so cleanly and beautifully you just get sucked into the majesty of it. It provides a really fresh blueprint on appreciating beauty in general. I've found myself applying the concepts to everything from clothes to my choice of pen and preference of carpet. The abundant use of pictures really aids the digestion of the knowledge. I found myself seeing the pictures and then thinking exactly what de Botton would subsequently write. Def will keep revisiting and revisiting, a special book.
If you are fascinated by art and culture, and want to gain further insights, can't go wrong.
