If there is a more charming book of the year in 2012 than Judith Phillips' pastels, combined with Heather Cooper's writing, for Bamfield Houses (unpriced), we have yet to see it. With intelligence and grace, it describes and illustrates 33 historical dwellings in the Bamfield area, making for a comprehensive tribute to people, places and a community. Vancouver-born painter and former librarian Judith Phillips first visited Bamfield in 1985 and now owns a home there; Heather Cooper moved to live in Bamfield from the Kootenays in 1999. 978-0-9880387-1-4 -- B.C.
