I completed this project last month: an altered book that I like!
I took an altered book workshop some time ago, and made a few attempts at that time, but did not like the results. I gave up on books for a few years, but books are big part of my life. I read all the time, and I used to think my dream house would certainly include a library! It would have books floor to ceiling with a rolling library ladder, and maybe even sliding panels of bookcases to provide additional shelf space.
But reality is different. My first dream house had some office space for our home business and a very nice guest room, which soon became my art room. I get rid of most books after reading them in order to have space for art. My (second) dream house features a separate spacious art studio for me, and a smaller art/office space for my husband with only a small multi-purpose guest space.We still have bookcases with reference books & books to be replaced after reading, and no library! Priorities have changed.
I still want that rolling library ladder, but now I want it for access to the two storage lofts in my art studio!
