Poetry of Palace profiles twenty captivating projects, from a stone tower folly standing in the gardens of a Tudor-style house to a humble yet elegant wooden lakeside retreat.

Through his poetic voice, Bobby McAlpine narrates the story of each residence, offering insights into both the elements of their design and their emotional resonance. Featured are an exotic Florida panhandle beach house; a Tuscan-style horse farm; a rambling Colonial Revival compound; and a miniature European-style manor house among others. Whether grand or humble, exuberant or understated, these dwellings share a warm, welcoming spirit.

With its gorgeous photography of inspiring interiors and exteriors, Poetry of Palace is the perfect book for anyone interested in design that romances the past and enriches the soul.
