landscapes altered book

December 26, 2016

Too ambitious as a first altered book project at 90 pages plus cover, this has been on and off my worktable for months. It is already falling apart from over-handling, so it’s time to send it off and let it go.

    Stunning! How much thicker is it now?

      Thank you Richard! I don’t honestly know how I feel about it – it’s been hanging around too long. I removed about a third of the pages from the book before starting it (which is why some of the pages don’t match across the spread), but it should have been more. It is breaking at the spine from the extra thickness, and it doesn’t close flat anymore…unless you use some force!

    What a wonderful piece Eileen. No artist likes things when they’re done! : ) The act alone of creating such a big piece of work is a feat. Are you altered-book addicted now? What will the next subject be? Have you used up all your scraps?

      I need a break from the book format! Or at least from the picture book as starting point. I get too hung up on the existing images. I pulled out some cigar boxes again. As to using up all the scraps….hahahahahahaaaaa….only a bonfire would help there.

    That’s gorgeous. Jane is right, when you engage with it for such a long time, you get so over it. Just let it rest for a while.
    And then re-bind it with a thicker spine?!

      Thanks Dedepups….I hadn’t thought of redoing the spine. Maybe once I’ve got some distance from it. Or I’ll leave it, lessons learned. Hopefully the next book engagement will be a step farther along whatever this path is.

    Amazing what you created there! Really an astonishing valueable piece of phantasie, creativity and soul. Super inspiring!
    Worth to be shown in an art museum!
    Wowwh, woowh, woowh. By sure will have a look in it more than several times 🙂
    You are great!
