Altered book art is quite the thing these days if you pay attention to the trends. Take a look at photographer Cara Barer’s award-winning sculptures as supplied by The Telegraph:

Lest you think innocent books are being damaged in this endeavor, Barer began her series with a telephone book found on a Houston sidewalk.

There is, in fact, an International Society of Altered Book Artists. Check out their website:

We have our very own altered book artist right here in Essex. Watch for news of Marlene Lenker’s altered book art in the Library, coming soon!
