The Altered Books Project
This project seeks to promote the arts in education by recycling discarded library books for the students to turn into works of art. This is a variation of the Zines Project, where the young women and men can use their books to create poetry, original artwork, and use their individual voices to express themselves. In the spirit of altered books as a medium, students can bring in their own cutouts, found objects, magazines, and pictures for use in their artwork. For more information on altered books, please visit the International Society of Altered Book Artists.
