Doma·phile n. 1. A lover of home. 2. Marked by or possessing the desire to pursue the domestic arts.
I am an art librarian and mother of two, who sees this blog as a manifestation of the ways my professional life and personal interests overlap. Here, I hope to document various domestic pursuits past and present, gather links to random and interesting sources of information, build a working bibliography, and find a community of like-minded folks who will post their projects and ideas, too. I am interested in the resurgence of the home-related arts and how this contemporary phenomenon fits into a historical context. Living in New York City, I long to keep bees, raise chickens, and grow food within the confines of my apartment building. Still working out the details.
