Granary Books

Please see the Main Library Gallery site for specific exhibit times.

For three decades, Granary Books has brought together writers, artists, and bookmakers committed to exploring and expanding the relations among the verbal, visual, and other arts.

Presenting a selection of UI Libraries’ comprehensive collection of Granary editions, this exhibition traces Granary publisher Steven Clay’s career from his beginnings as a UI undergraduate in the 1970s to his present position as one of the most significant small publishers in the country. Selected items include printed matter in a wide variety of formats, among them Western and accordion-fold codices, broadsides, and a wall-hung contemporary quipu.

The artists represented include John Ashbery, Susan Bee, Charles Bernstein, Ted Berrigan, John Cage, Henrik Drescher, Emily McVarish, Carolee Schneemann, Buzz Spector, and Cecilia Vicuña.
