A book is like a friend. We understand the world and life, or even observe ourselves through texts, and have a deep realization of oneself that we are not alone. PMQ invites different people from design and culture sectors to recommend a book, so that you can enrich yourselves as book therapy.

Why would you recommend this book?

何比:The days of staying home under epidemic times has reminded me of the life of accomplished American writer and illustrator Tasha Tudor. She was born in the 1910s, when elitism led the trend. Yet, what Tasha was looking for was totally a different story. She glorified nature and country life in her works. Self-sufficient life was her ultimate life goal.

Tasha Tudor lived in a simple country house in Vermont. She took care of the farm everyday, living self sufficiently; She loved sewing and handmade every possible thing. Everything in her house has been recorded in the book and eventually becomes an eternal utopia. Nowadays, Tasha Tudor’s home is a museum that visitors could revisit and appreciate the time of staying home.
