Is it wrong to take an old book and use it for sculpture or a visual journal? I am a big visual journaler and have always wondered how other people perceive it. If you don't know what visual journals are I have examples on my website, www.lookbetweenthelines.com.
I love altering books, I think it is a great art form. The books themselves are just another medium. I choose books either by their story or the physical book itself at used book sales. I would never touch my personal library at home of course.
