Ancestry @ JXTA
Ancestry Books has from its inception been a space that could not have been realized without the support of a wide array of individual and organizational partners. One of those amazing partners has been Juxtaposition Arts. When we first opened in 2014 we contracted Juxtaposition Arts Environmental Design Lab to design and fabricate our unique bookshelves. We also contracted Juxtaposition Arts Graphics Lab for the design of our logo.
Such a fantastic partnership has continued to date with Ancestry @ JXTA: a re occurring pop up. Back in November of 2015, as Ancestry Books no longer had a physical location, Juxtaposition Arts opened up their 1104 West Broadway building (Textile Lab) to host Ancestry Books for Small Business Saturday. We had a smashing success with so many visitors, old and new that not only supported Ancestry Books but also purchased a number of Juxtapositions’ custom screen printed clothing gear that is also on display at that location.
We decided to try it again over the holiday season in December and were met with similar excitement and are now, as of February 2016, operating as a re occurring pop up on the weekends. Our ours are Saturdays 1pm – 6pm, and Sundays 10am – 5pm.
Check out our carefully curated selection of books, from Revolutionary Mothering: Love on the Front Lines to Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. Also stay tuned for our April events which we our thrilled to be hosting. And big bonus is that when you come by Ancestry Books and pick up your favorite lit from your trusted brick and mortar, you can also pick up some of Juxtapositions’ incredible line of t-shirts, hoodies, and bags.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
