5.0 out of 5 stars TRAVEL BOOK April 19 2012
By Minze
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I give this book 5 stars because it is very artistic with beautiful photographs.
This book is NOT a decorating book. There are no interior shots, however,
you will find plenty of wonderful pictures. You will see close-ups of brooms,
shoes, pebbles etc. and if you appreciate good photography this is the
book for you. It makes a nice and exoctic looking coffee table book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great attention to unique details April 29 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I really loved the incorporation of unique details from foreign countries into design ideas. Some of the photos seemed a little too staged or styled instead of functional, but definitely a wellspring of ideas. What I did not enjoy was the struggle to read the text. Much of the text was overlaid in small "typewriter" print onto very dark background pages. The effect was visually pleasing, but almost impossible to read. Sad, too, because I enjoyed the author's comments very much when I could read them.
I would buy other books by this author because I think that she has some important things to say about incorporating the obscure or insignificant objects we might otherwise overlook into our homes. Loved the summarizing of a national "palette" of color for the countries she featured.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing New Dec 5 2011
By ufobooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
If you have Etcetera (first book of this type) then you pretty much have Nomad, the same ideas are rehashed except she used 5 countries of inspiration Mexico, Italy, Syria, India and Japan (about 10-15 pages each, some pages more jumbled than others). Her ideas or sources of ideas are repeated in parts, and her instructions on design is small. A few sentences per a page (not a big deal as this is her style of writing), but a note if you are expecting deeper information on nomad life and wares, this is not the book. This is more a travel log of what she has seen and about herself (an excessive use of "I" overload). If you are new to Sibella Court or like the countries mentioned this may be an okay book, but I think Etcetera is the better book as it has more design and better use of props and objects in home design. Some good things about the book include the choice of paper and binding, and the Japan chapter was a nice start.

3.0 out of 5 stars So beautiful. So awkward. Dec 19 2011
By M. Fox - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
First, the good:
The book is beautiful and hefty. The cover is thick and ornate, and the pages are a pleasure to turn. Beautiful photographs with beautiful lighting illustrate beautiful ideas. This is the kind of book you want to snuggle down with at the end of a long day, in your deepest armchair, with a glass of wine.

The average: I bought it because I live in Japan (the first country featured) and was looking for new ideas. I learned a few new things, but this book is primarily to indulge the senses and not to inform. You won't find explanations of most items featured. So if you want to search on ebay for the Japanese bamboo ladle pictured on page 56, you had better already know that it is a bamboo ladle used in tea ceremony. As another reviewer mentioned, the book reads like Sibella Court's travel diary. If the navel-gazing becomes too much, you can just skip the text (there's not much) and enjoy the eye candy.

The bad: Unfortunately, the 4th country profiled is Syria. I'm going to guess this is just very unfortunate timing and that the book was already well on its way to being published before the uprising. The chapter is well-photographed and fascinating, but definitely uncomfortable to read in light of current events. Hopefully, in a few years time, there will have been a happy ending and readers will be able to follow her travels there. There is also some awkwardness with her romanticized views of these countries ("I have had a longtime love affair with the romantic side of colonialism...", etc). Obviously, this is a book on design and not history, but her failure to even hint at the problematic caused a bit of squirming. On my part, at least.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pack Your Bags + your sketchbook March 7 2012
By LKP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I really enjoyed this book. Both of Court's earlier books were given to me as gifts, from artist friends, and those books set the stage for my anticipation for what she would do next. I thought this book was a viable and interesting follow-up to her earlier projects.....not simply a mere
"warmed over" version of them, as offered by some reviewers. I was not expecting some kind of ultra-practical Design Manual from her -- I think she has built her brand on her role as an inveterate collector, gatherer, "a person who notices", and uber stylist/stager of Great Stuff. The writing style is,
alas, a bit off-hand and spontaneous -- but text is hardly the point with a book like this. To me, the strength of this book is......Once you look through it, you will be reminded of the joys of travel, and how wonderful it is to spend some time in a different culture and hit the "Refresh" button. Her solutions for decor and staging are about bringing things out of the drawers, placing them around in new fresh ways, and then re-vamping and re-imagining it on a regular basis. This book isn't for people who feel they need to follow a Manual for decorating -- but I would recommend it to creative people who want to live in a home that has verve, individuality and authentic vibrancy. (In addition, I really thought the production aspect of the book was excellent with more-than-usual care given to page design, paper stock, embossed covers, etc. A treat for the eyes.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Nomad by Sibella Court Feb. 14 2012
By Leonie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has a beautiful quality about it, it is printed on beautiful paper and the photographs are beautifully shot. The only complaint I would have is that for an interior decoration book there aren't many photographs of completed rooms, it is more like design mock-ups. I would have liked to have seen more interior shots.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing Feb. 23 2012
By L. Zea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
The front page and the title of this book seemed so promising but essentially this is nothing but what appears to be a published ibook of someone's travelogue. Court refers to herself over and over again and "I" is used on every other page. The ways in which she talks about some of the countries seem fairy-talish and a little naive at times with a very romanticized overload. For design advice it is not useful at all as it is mainly pretty pictures. A close up of a pair of shoes or a cute picture of a half a bicycle does nothing to understand how to create interesting interiors. Other ideas are not very functional - like pretty wall paper rolled out on the floor by a bed or a cute wood sofa covered with prizes. This book reminds me of a book you would make for a friend after your trip to show off where you went - but as a global approach to interior design? I don't think so. A lot of pretty pictures, on pretty paper in a nice binding.
