This book is altered.
my sister-in-law, Bev Powell, had a wonderful collection of art books. We stayed with her at some point in 2006 or 2007. I saw a book about altered books and fell in love with the idea.
This is my first attempt at an altered book.


I split pages to make little doors, and glued some together. I added photographs from magazines, like this angel, and pieces of stationery from my Japanese paper collection. I was already collaging, so I had a fair number of supplies!

I even created a niche! Staying with the Japanese theme.

never got around to doing anything with the cover except whiting out some of the titles.
