Second in a series about altered books.

A closure device can be a nice touch. Below, you see a finished cover (I left quite a lot of the antique book cover showing) with a polished horn and leather loop at the open side.

Rusted metal, fibrous fabric, imagery, and corrugated cardboard.

Here's a side view of the finished book, below.

Now for a freebie offer (now closed) for my followers only! I have sooooo many books and not enough room, so the first person (who follows this blog) who contacts me privately with their postal address (U. S. only, please) WINS the antique schoolbook shown below. I think it's from the 50's.

With color illustrations inside!

I'll mail it to the winner at no charge, of course, and I promise I won't use your mailing address for anything else. When the book has been given away, I'll make a note here.
The winner of this vintage book is Jo Rice!
