Altered Books

So , what's An Altered Book??? – well, anything goes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  An old book is transformed into a “work of art”, using the pages as “blank” canvases ...

Upside is; you can do anything you want to it – paint, stamp, decorate, embellish, fold pages, burn pages, weave into pages, make pockets, add anything (and everything!)

Downside is; you end up with a (hopefully!) beautiful book, but you won’t be able to read it !!!!!!!!!!! (or not most of it anyway!!)

So you can probably realise that this is way way outside my comfort zone!!!

Anyway, I'll post my progress (or non-progress!) on my book (a copy of Homer's Illiad) here.

Back soon!
