5.0 out of 5 stars Great intro, instruction and bookshelf reference, April 16, 2006
This review is from: Altered Books Workshop (Paperback)
Of the many altered book (AB) references on my bookshelf, this is one I often return to. The instructions are clear, thorough and effectively illustrated. Fundamental AB techniques are included:

Collage

Sketching

Cutting doors

Cutting windows

Tags

Folding pages

Adding inserts

Also, for anyone who is new to ABs, this book describes the process, materials, tools and special considerations. Since it concentrates on one artist's style, it's also easy to track from technique to technique. Also includes a good reference section for sourcing materials and other atrists. There's enough here to get anyone started on ABs and it's a good reference for veteran artists.
