Other People's Homes: Suburban Kerb Appeal

Other People's Homes: Suburban Kerb Appeal


'I adore perving at Australia's quirky and under-appreciated architectural underbelly through Sandy's stalky lens.' - Tim Minchin

A delightfully curated collection that celebrates the eclectic, the innovative, the showstoppers, the elegantly decaying and the quirkily heartwarming homes hiding in plain view. This book showcases the houses that remind us of where we grew up or where we wanted to grow up. What's captured here is a snapshot of a disappearing Australia.
