Altered Book Art

A couple of how-to's, in case you have some books you can alter...if you don't have any but would like to try one of these projects, keep an eye out for yard sales or library book sales:

* On Craftside: How to make recycled book page flowers from the book Playing with Books by Jason Thompson

* On Planet Green: Old Book, New Craft: Things to Make From Used Books (including a hidden safe, wallets, and envelopes)

This pinhole camera was made by engrained from a book.

More altered book art:
* To Kill A Mockingbird birdhouse and Golden Book birdhouses
* A book sculpture project at Cornell University
* Khoshbin manipulated book art

A desk made of books at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands

Lastly, book-inspired art, book spine poems, book cover art
