Altered Book Art

Creative individuals are recycling books into works of art. In fact, a whole society of altered book artists exists. Some of these books have a scrapbook look; others have a more simple design. It seems like a wonderful way to recycle damaged/unused books destined for the trash bin. I wonder if any art teachers might be interested in donations for this type of project… Kim at Kimbooktu covers the topic in a little more detail including links to diy projects. Thanks Kim!
