How to make a home

Jan has a thing with instruction manuals and people giving advice. That’s why she typed the question ‘How to make a home’ into google. When she got directed to a forum with many tips and advices she decided to rent a house and follow the strangers’ advice.

She collected all written forum advices and documented the house with a series of photographs. The book is approached as a manual, where text and image together form an instruction for anyone willing to do the same.
