Xylor Jane: Notebooks is a hybrid artist’s book and drawing monograph of works from the mid-2000s to the present by Massachusetts–based painter Xylor Jane. Xylor Jane's often brightly colored, immaculately constructed paintings are based on or derived from numbers and other systems of order. The works are informed by a drawing activity that is as much about notating her daily life as it is about comprehending the role of numbers and their history. Based on the format of a notebook, the design foregrounds the drawings – allowing each to occupy the full page. Sequenced by the artist herself, the book is the first to focus on Jane's drawings and notes and features essays by John Yau and Em Rooney. Published by Canada and Parrasch Heijnen Gallery, 2020.
