The idea for this book began in 1995 in Miami, Florida, with a group of paintings and sculpture created for Tall's first exhibition as part of her Masters of Fine Arts graduate program at University of Miami.

Some of the work was inspired by a study of medieval woodcuts and stone carvings, dating from the 11th and 12th centuries. In those times, few people knew how to read books, thus these illustrations were a way of telling stories.

This influence led to a body of work she called "Househeads". This body of work brought to life many of these characters and consists of a world of house-headed people, creatures who are part architectural and part human, and with body or heads made out of buildings.

This book presents selected works from Cheryl Tall since 2000. Sculptures and paintings as well as images of the artist at work and at exhibitions are shown in sequence by year.
