Altered Book II


Altered children's book with Lumiere paints over braille paper, corrugated paper and various other papers; embellished with cord, embroidery thread and coin trim. Duct tape on spine. C. 2006

The shape of this book inspired an exploration of writing---the characters, styles, and history. Each 2-page spread focuses on the scripts of France, Italy, Thailand & China, respectively, with ephemera from other countries added as embellishment.
