Think of the hundreds of books and magazines (especially National Geographic) donated to worthy causes--even libraries--that are simply not worth keeping or cataloging for myriad reasons. All the better, then, to recycle those paper treasures into a work of art or, at least, of craft. California rebookmaker Brazelton applies collage and decorating techniques used in such nouveau arts as journaling and scrapbooking to transform unappreciated hard covers into display pieces. Included are the usual tools and materials, from painting to rubber-stamping, along with instructions for methods like stitching, glazing, and image transfers. What's unusual? Her process for book selection, the bountiful examples of her own works, and extraordinarily useful tips like "let each separate layer of glaze dry before adding another" and "use a large hole punch to cut a small window." Unfortunately, nowhere does she indicate the length of time needed to create one book of art; chances are the novice will need more than a day of production. Barbara Jacobs

Altered Books Workshop is a book that will stay on the front section of my bookcase, where I keep my favorite "go to" books. This book is definitely money well spent!
of altered books. I am glad I have this book in my arts library. It goes well with Altered books 101 and 102.
For people who have already been creating altered books, this one might seem like a review of sorts. I think it is especially helpful to those of us who need a little nudge in the right direction.
I know that the women I share creative time with will enjoy looking through this book.
