This is an edition from Harland Miller’s dust jacket series in which the artist treats books as three-dimensional objects with their own unknown but personal histories of being read, re-sold, discarded, cherished, forgotten, re-found and even rebound. While Miller conjures this patina in the ‘beaten-up’ depiction of the books, he also uses his own titles to ground them in the present. In this instance, it is the aspect of maximalist expression, withered by history, that the title Hate’s Outta Date both challenges and evokes.


The Artist

Harland Miller

Harland Miller is a British writer and artist working both in Europe and America since the 1980s. In 2001 Harland Miller produced a series of paintings based of the dust jackets of Penguin books. By combining the motif inherent in the Penguin book, Miller found a way to marry aspects of Pop Art, abstraction and figurative painting at once, with his writer’s love of text. The ensuing images are humorous, sardonic and nostalgic at the same time, while the painting style hints at the dog-eared, scuffed covers of the Penguin classics themselves.
