Beginnings of an Altered Book

This is the inside of the book I took to Sommer-hausen with me. It is a guide from London, printed during the early 70's. I prepared it by cutting pages out and then using matt gel medium to join pages on either side of the cut.

I then used fancy scissors to trim some of the pages, and painted them with two layers of gesso.

Whilst we we at Sommerhausen, some printing was done in my book, some of which you can see here.

The feather is from a thermofax screen I purchased from www.thermofaxscreens.co.uk. The Klimt lady is from a Gocco screen I made using a copyright free image from Dover. The green is from a plate that TJ made using string.
