A House is not a Home


Author's description

This print was created thanks to the discovery in an e-market of a unique 1906 German book.
The book is: "Georg Aster, Villen und kleine familienhäuser", Leipzig: J. J. Weber (Villas and small townhomes, published by J. J. Weber in Leipzig)

George Aster (full name: Aster Alexander George, born the 23rd of April 1849 in Frauenstein and dead the 20th of August 1917 in Dresden, Loschwitz) was a German architect and author of several books.

The book, with 293 11 x 17 cm, pages, is bound in brown cloth, with the edges of the pages red, and well contains 112 B/W illustrations of single family homes and villas with their plans. These admirable beautiful style designs have given the inspiration me to the realization of a graphic composition that enhances the quality of these designs, which are very academic and naive, and is superimposed by a strong red inscription in an antique font that dates back to approximately 1940.

American Captain, this is the actual name of the font redesigned by Michael G. Adkins to be used digitally.

"A HOUSE IS NOT A HOME" is the statement that supports the idea that a building is not a house, because the house is the sedimentation of living so that even though outwardly there may be buildings that are identical to oone another, they retain within the style of those who inhabit them that make them houses, dwellings.
