DESCRIPTION

JAUS is very pleased to present “Home On La Grange” curated by Kio Griffith.

Modern day "grangerizers" hunt and gather outdated printed matter and everyday scrap to reconstruct the printed object. The show will survey expanded ideas of reworked books, album covers, consumer packaging and imaginary materials.

"Where seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day… (from "Home on The Range")

grang·er·ize
1. to augment the illustrative content of (a book) by inserting additional prints, drawings, engravings, etc., not included in the original volume.
2. to mutilate (books) in order to get illustrative material for such a purpose.


Origin:
1880–85;  after James Granger  (1723–1776), English clergyman whose Biographical History of England  (1769) was arranged for such illustrations.
