Blue Altered Book

This is the first spread in this book I am altering. It was a book that was going to be thrown out. I have no plans, title or theme. Just letting whatever comes to my mind.

It is mostly experimenting with mediums and whatever intrigues me. I am not sure this page is exactly done. For now here it is.

Altered book - Desire

The real title of this book is "The Architect of Desire" By Suzannah Lessard. I found it on the $1.00 shelf at my favorite used book store. I loved the title and the fact that it was a white covered book.  Which opens to all sorts of notions of altering it. 

I began reading the book as I tore out the pages. Consequently my art took on some of the story, which was not what I had originally intended. It is a family story of Stanford White told by his great-grandchild. 

I put the book down unfinished for several years and now back working in it with some different eyes looking at it.
