									     Altered Books

Homework project due May 15th
          What is an altered book?
• An altered book is a
  form of mixed media
  artwork that changes a
  book from its original
  form into something
  else. I particularly like the
  ones that leave the book
  contents somewhat
  intact, making a sort of
  derivative work of the
  original.
