Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today more than ever, you can't judge a book by its cover. Why? Because two of the hottest new trends in bookmaking are pushing the boundaries of what it means to write, read, and experience a book. This exiting guide explores the creative processes behind "altered books"--when artists make their own distinctive mark on an already published work--and "collaborative journals"--in which many artists come together to create a unique single work. Readers will learn how to alter treasured books through collage, paint, layering, sewing, and more. And they'll learn how communities of artists can come together to select a topic, set up a project, and ultimately publish or show their finished collaborative work. Filled with easy, how-to projects and beautiful gallery photos, this book will help artists of any ability to create books that tell unique and personal stories.
