Altered Book

I promised a few people that I'd upload some photos of my altered book. (If you haven't heard of altered books before... check this out)

Mine isn't really a typical altered book, in the sense that most people create altered books as simple art pieces. But when I decided to start mine, I knew that I'd never get through an entire book if I didn't have a specific use for it (like, with my sketchbooks - I'm still using the same sketchbook I started over 8 years ago LOL - I find it hard to get motivated sometimes)

So anyway, I decided to make my altered book into an "altered recipe book" with an additional theme of being "retro" ...

Here's a few pages from my book - If you scroll over where it says "notes" in the pictobrowser, I've added some comments about the pages, materials used, etc.:

Holy crap! You weren't kidding.

Great work! You should definitely email the author of the original book.

Katie said...

Aww, thanks for the sweet words everyone! Glad you like it :)

I don't think I could possibly email the original author though... LOL, I'd be like "Hi, I thought your book sucked, but LOOK AT HOW GREAT I MADE IT NOW!!!!"

hehe ... what a blow to the ego!
