Debut – beginnings of an Altered Book

“Paris is the greatest temple ever built to material joys and the lust of the eyes.” Henry James

That must explain it, much more expensive than the usual 50cent book but how could you walk past that dust jacket, better yet the beautifully detailed cover.

Picked it up and put it down a few times
much too expensive for just a pretty cover
certainly not suitable for a good AB – it is not stitched
the story did not hold the attention
only one little picture of use on the pages inside

Decisions, decisions, decisions and here we are at home with book in hand trying to decide on a theme and should we split the spine to make it a chunky over embellished fat book or try to keep it in tact for a few polite petite pretty pages…………..

Got any suggestions ? If you are not familiar with my altered books here’s a link to the Garden Gate book from earlier this year.

Open to trades or swaps for ephemera, had to promise myself that we would not ebay anything to finish this book as it cost enough by itself. See how long I last on that promise 🙂
