The Tract House

The Tract House was founded in 2008 as a spread-the-word project inspired by the distribution model and graphic quality of religious tracts.

The Tract House was first shown in Baltimore, Maryland, as part of the exhibition "Cottage Industry" curated by Kristin Chambers at the Contemporary Museum in 2008. The Tract House was located in a storefront property a few short blocks from the museum and included 62 tracts. More information and photos of The Tract House can be found here.

The Tract House: A Darwin Addition was commissioned by the American Philosophical Society (APS) Museum as part of the city-wide graphic arts festival Phikagrafika in 2010. The Tract House: A Darwin Addition was located a few blocks from the APS Museum and a walking map of sites to look for along the way was produced to accompany the installation. The Tract House: A Darwin Addition, included 63 tracts. More information and photographs of The Tract House: A Darwin Addition can be found here.

The Tract House tracts were all designed by Roman Jaster.

The Tract House website is at TheTractHouse.com and includes pdfs of all tracts for download.

The Tract House tracts have also been distributed at Printed Matter Bookstore in NYC and at ThreeWalls in Chicago, IL.
