house hosts update

Open House has had plenty of exposure on this blog already over the last year or so, and as we mentioned in March, the project has taken on a new direction. Over the past couple of months, the pair of books have been hosted in the homes of a select group of artists, writers and practitioners and have travelled as far as the US, Norway and Demark, as well as residences in the UK.

Each host is sent a hosting pack, which includes a set of letterpress postcards and snacks for their (very) private view! After hosting the books and producing a review, we ask that each host selects one word from the list of 12 themes (on which our books were based) and produce their own written and photographic response; these are then posted on a separate section of the blog.

We have already received a wonderful selection of reminiscences, and whilst the books still have a few more journeys to undertake, here is a small selection of the responses so far. For the full stories please click on the link below:
