Thanks for your comments about the altered books post. Here are some more images: The first from Glen Skien, a Queensland book artist, which was taken last week at the exhibition on altered books at the State Library of NSW.  I loved that exhibition which included a book by Wollongong book artist Liz Jeneid who I was lucky to meet up with again last week.

It’s fun to find a new life for an old book and there are lots of amazing artists transforming tired books into beautiful works of art. Just google recycled books and see what you find.
