Brand New. Paperback. Rockport Publishers, 2003.
This book explores two new forms of bookmaking: “Altered books” -when artists recreate an already published work- and “collaborative journals” -when artists come together to create a unique, single work. It shows how to alter books through the use of collage, paint, layering, sewing and more. The book shows the work of current book artists as well as information on how they select and alter books. Included techniques are burning, cutting windows, extensions, inclusions, photo transfers, gelatin prints, computer manipulation and many others. There are tips on how to start a Round Robin, or join one through the Internet, and selecting a project for collaborative effort. A guide and resource!
