Altered Books

Our tiny house is almost filled with books but this weekend we had great fun making sculptures from some old books that were destined for the second hand store. The text of each individual book creates its own pattern. I am now working on ways to hang some of them and have an idea for adding cut out forms of paper to one or two. I have long been fascinated by artists working with books so this is one of those things I have wanted to try for some time now.  I am not sure where this project will take us yet, but we are having such fun in the meantime!
