Superhouse: Architecture & Interiors Beyond the Everyday is a stunning 2014 book release from Penguin Books Australia and the latest title from Karen McCartney, founding editor of Inside Out magazine. For McCartney, the the difference between a normal building and a “superhouse” doesn’t hinge on size or wealth. Rather, it is imagination that makes the difference. In the Superhouse book, McCartney juxtaposes luxury homes and creative budget dwellings, emphasizing the diversity of “superhouses” to be found in all shapes and sizes in every corner of the world. The 336-page hardcover book serves as an inspiring and holistic guide to interior architecture, complete with text by McCartney, color photographs by Richard Powers, expert interviews, and architectural drawings. Find Superhouse at your local bookstore or online for  $79.99.
