Altered Books

C.R. introduced me to a very very cool art form that I had not heard of before. Its called 'altered books'. One site described it this way,"t is any book, old or new that has been recycled by creative means into a work of art. They can be ... rebound, painted, cut, burned, folded, added to, collaged in, gold-leafed, rubber stamped, drilled or otherwise adorned ... and yes! It is legal!"
There are all sorts of things online about it but here is one of the best sites I found.
