I have been working on my second altered book and find it very enjoyable. I am going to begin working on a new book and was wondering if anyone out there also enjoys this hobby. If you have any pictures of your work, do post them or send me a link to your site with the pictures. Do you enjoy making altered books?

I've bought some books to do altered books with, but I haven't gotten started yet - one I may just make into a "safe", I found one some place and would like to make one of my own... wonder where that book safe is...

Cute response. I have several BLANK books to fill also but those aren't the same as altered books because they are blank. Thanks for your comments!

oh, no, these aren't blank books, they are $1 books from Half Price Books, that I want to alter, but haven't gotten around to it.

i have never heard of making altered books but it sounds like something that i would enjoy doing from the sounds of it...it sounds like you just take any book that you have read and rewrite it to the way you like it i know i have read quite a few books that i did not like how they ended or thought "this" should happen or "that" should not have happened it sounds like something that i would like to do but sadly i do not have alot of time to dedicate to crafting
