Synopsis

This is a creative guide from a recognized leader in the altered book community. It features 15 ideas that range from the inventive to the traditional. It explains the basics for beginners and provides inspiration to experienced crafters. Gabe Cyr, a recognized leader in the altered-book community, is a strong advocate of the creative possibilities of this craft. Here, Gabe not only explains the basic techniques to newcomers, she also broadens the topic and finds exciting new ways to transform a simple book into a unique art object using a wide range of media. The 15 inventive ideas include books that are turned into functional objects, such as clocks or picture frames. Other projects reinvent traditional book forms and shapes, such as the accordion and circle design. Inspiring examples of collaborative altered books and round robins are also included.
