Altered Book Show

This is my Altered book I entered in the MarinMOCA Altered Book and Books Arts show in
Novato, CA.

This is a detail of the spine of a discarded library book.

I used a glassine envelope and added some other elements into the piece including
a tag and a  torn book page.

The little holes on the right hand side of the book page was made by putting the pages in my perforator that I normally use to make artist stamps. I wanted the texture to mimic a sewing machine.
I found a book page and it was discolored from having a old
newspaper clipping inside of it. It left a stain on the page. I
really loved the color it made on the page.  

The Altered book show is going on right now until May 23rd. It has over 150 
pieces in the show from artists all over the Bay Area. Go check it out and let me 
know what you think of the show. This is my third time being a part of this exhibition.
