Abstract (English)

" This box is the residue of mail art activity during the years 1996-1998. In keeping with the project theme, all of the items meet two criteria: the creators identified them as "books" ; and, their creation was enabled by some kind of "collaborative" process. Each book item is labeled with a catalogue number that corresponds to information about it in the box's index, as well as in the original exhibition catalogue. The twenty boxes making up this edition of Renegade Library include the items of the original exhibitions that survived its years as a mail art lending library (1998 to about 2002), and additional items that were contributed immediately following the exhibition. These boxes are being located in publicly accessible collections of artists books throughout Canada and other countries. " -- Lois Klassen, accompanying documentation.
