Twelve Hamilton Houses explores the vernacular domestic typography of the twelve family houses that I lived in growing up in Hamilton, New Zealand. Documented via print, mainly the risograph stencil duplicator, local street signs and letterboxes are documented and extracted from images to put each house and suburb up for comparison. Alongside the vernacular typography, the book examines other methods of displaying residential street addresses through multiple “mapping lenses” such as online Streetview, written, oral / folklore and more “traditional” modes of documenting “place”.
