altered-books, tutorial

Choose a book you like...an old one of course, not a precious, expensive one...I get mine in a second-hand bookshop...When books are very old , torn, burnt, if pages are missing, the books are distroyed, so I buy them and give them a second life...
Take your time...look carefully, smell the pages...that's a very sensual job...you'll undress the book...


the side of the pages is sometimes beautiful, so be careful not to spoil it when using them


some pictures may inspired you as well, keep them carefully, you may use them in this book or in another one...
now carefully begin the undressin, keep all little pieces in a box, and take time to admire, to take photos...as a souvenir...and to get further inspiration...




fascinating, isn't it...



time to start dreaming...don't hurry...let the story come in your heart and fingers...
