In very rare moments of self doubt I sometimes worry that you lot will get bored of me.
I also worry that all this blogging is badly written, unspell-checked, grammatically deficient and not like proper writing. Because of this and because previous guests have been so popular I've asked Henrietta to guest write a whole week on this blog. So you'll hear nothing from me for a whole week.
Let me introduce you to Henrietta. She's a proper design writer, that's how she earns a living.
Just two weeks ago she helped write the Guardian's Pompidou supplement. She's written for Arena, Blueprint, Business Life, Dazed & Confused, Design Week, the Independent on Sunday, Monocle, Wallpaper* and the Architects Journal. She's curated several exhibitions including the annual '100% Norway' and 'Hearwear' at the V&A.
As if that wasn't enough she's also written two books; Phone Book and Simply Contemporary.
She'll be posting all week from Monday to Friday, I've no idea what she's gonna write about and I've given her a completely free reign. I'll just be sitting back and watching. I may even comment from time to time. So log on, enjoy, play nicely, comment and make her feel at home.
I'm really looking forward to it.
But why's she sitting in a room with a door that's only 3 foot high?

And the picture is pretty sexual.
the door thing is quite intriguing indeed

Maybe the door is normal height, maybe I'm actually 3m tall...

very nice... looking forward to the forthcoming week

But if you're 3m tall, that would mean you're holding an A1 notebook. I hope that doesn't mean your posts are going to be 4,000 words long (you know, a bit like Stephen Fry http://stephenfry.com/blog/ ).

ooh! i read about the architectural association show on 'graphic design in architecture' and in some weird experience-by-proxy thang i was going to ask you, ben, whether you had seen it and if you were going to blog about it. but maybe i should ask you, henrietta, instead!

ben, did you make that "guest" sign all by yourself? :)

Lauren - you're best off asking Henrietta, definitely.
Jon - haha yes. All by myself.
