Janfamily - Plans for other days presents a catalogue of suggestions on how to engage with everyday life in our fleeting, fast-moving world. Janfamily is a group of young artists that share a unique approach to life. They explore the things that surround them, and together they create alternatives to everyday routines. Janfamily - Plans for other days, their first publication, is a manifesto of their philosophy: it is a 'how to' book, a list of proposals on how to relate to our own surroundings. By offering solutions to problems such as 'How to soften a challenge' and 'How not to do what you did yesterday', we are invited to revisit the simple things in life that are often ignored or unnoticed. Janfamily - Plans for other days is a humorous yet touching presentation of an alternative way of looking at the world. Authors Based in London, Jan is a family of artists and designers working in a wide variety of forms.
