Altered Books 06-07

Altered books is an art form in which existing books are reworked into works
of art. The existing book becomes the canvas for the new ideas and images.
Sometimes words or images from the book are retained as a part of the altering.
At other times the book is entirely obscured to become a completely new idea.*

Ninth grade Studio Art students created these Altered book spreads using
mixed media. Emphasis was placed on good design with a strong focus on the
art principles Emphasis/Center of Interest, Contrast, and Unity.
