about this book

“A magical book. . . . A prism through which all worlds from literary creation to housework to aesthetics to carpentry take on enhanced-and enchanted-significances. Every reader of it will never see ordinary spaces in ordinary ways. Instead the reader will see with the soul of the eye, the glint of Gaston Bachelard.” -from the foreword by John R. Stilgoe

“French phenomenologist Bachelard’s classic study of the psychological affects of domestic space.” — Publishers Weekly
