Artist's Books

I know at least a few of you are interested in or make "altered books". As a rather large part of what I do for a living, I repair books. Nothing rare or special, just regular books that circulate and are much used by our students. From me they get glued hinges, new spines, spanking new end papers or tipped in pages. This is far, far less interesting than the "book art" which always facinates me. Someday I will make the leap. In the meantime, I read about it and try to learn what I can. Check out this book artist's blog. Amazing and fun work.

Hi Jenny,
I have a web site where I share the altered books I've made. Maybe you'd enjoy taking a look at my Altered Books Gallery and my blog, Artful Journey. Thanks for sharing all you do.

Hi Jenny, I want to encourage you to try something in the book arts realm. You must be very tuned in to the form of books, since you work with them a lot. Just for fun, no pressure! What about a cloth book?
