SEVEN ROOMS edited by Dominic J. Jaeckle & Jess Chandler
140 x 216mm, 444 pages, black and white printing, perfect bound, softcover, 2023
Seven Rooms brings together highlights from Hotel, a magazine for new approaches to fiction, non-fiction & poetry which, since its inception in 2016, provided a space for experimental reflection on literature’s status as art & cultural mediator. Co-published by Tenement Press and Prototype, this anthology captures, refracts, and reflects a vital moment in independent publishing in the UK, and is built on the shared values of openness, collaboration, and total creative freedom.
Seven years following the publication of Hotel #1 (2016), and in tribute to the cessation of the ‘paper hotel’ with the publication of Hotel #7 (2021), Seven Rooms is a document of the project’s unerring commitment to pioneering creativity, literature’s idiosyncracies, and shared space.
