Portraying a wide variety of houses, the authors start with a unique and rarely seen traje, or Tarascan Indian home from the Lake Patzcuara region. Then they introduce the reader to long established haciendas, urban homes of colonial antecedents and those of ultra-modernistic design. The book is a treasure trove of beauty that will incite the imagination.
