Draw Me a House is a playbook for budding architects and anyone interested in the built environment. Illustrated by Thibaud Herem, it invites people of all ages to colour in, think about, doodle and engage with 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 fantasy. From completing the columns on the Parthenon to thinking of an alternative top to the Chrysler Building, to drawing a deluxe doghouse or 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 humour that jumps off the page, and the ideas have an equal lightness of touch. The book is luxuriously produced satisfyingly chunky, printed on a heavy, creamy uncoated paper, with a laser cut cover that stands out boldly. This book will delight children and adults alike.

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) 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.
