Altered Books – The Framing Begins

Altered books - the framing begins

I don’t have a dedicated studio space at the moment so all of the work I’ve produced over the last few months has started to take over my rather small apartment. There are altered books (and supplies) piled in every corner and hung on most of the walls as well. This week I started working on framing the altered books in preparation of displaying them at Bootup Labs in a few weeks.

I’ve chosen to mount each book on the inside of a cradle frame, and was working at Boris’ parents place on Bowen for a few days to use their workshop for sanding and staining the wood frames. These are the first few altered books that I’ve finished framing. They look pretty wonderful, don’t you think?
