The Howff Project is an exploration of artist Tim Knowles’s landscape project by the same name. For more than two years, Knowles built a network of hidden, site-specific shelters across the Scottish landscape. Inspired by the Scottish word “howff,” which describes an abode, tavern, familiar haunt, or shelter, Knowles utilized existing structures and features in the landscape and then adapted, modified, and reconfigured their characteristics to create a series of unique hidden shelters, providing refuge in remote areas.
 
The Howff Project
takes readers behind the scenes of the making of each structure, from conception to finished product. Visually rich, the book captures the landscape through more than one hundred stunning photographs and drawings, and personal anecdotes detail Knowles’s experience traveling through the Scottish Lowlands and the mountains of Aberdeenshire and the Cairngorms.
