For some, home is simply a place to eat, sleep, and store possessions. For others, home offers intimate and rewarding opportunities for self-expression, becoming a reflection of taste, values, and even identity. The activities of constructing and maintaining a home can provide a sense of existential purpose, of belonging to a particular place along with others who have cared for that place before.
Illustrated with more than 100 color photographs, A Home of Her Own showcases a wide variety of homes and tells the stories of their making.
