Make it New! The Art of Book and Page Alteration: A Workshop with Nance Van Winckel

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Old encyclopedias needn't be put out to pasture, dumpsterized, or shredded. No! They can be repurposed. In this free workshop we'll first look at a few examples of altered books and book pages. Then we'll work on some pages of our own: altering what's there by removing, changing, and replacing text and illustrations. We'll also discuss ways you can develop projects of integrating your own text with such "public domain" materials as old advertisements, photographs, books, and historical documents. All materials will be provided.
