An “Altered Book” is any book, old or new, that is changed by creative means into a work of art. They can be rebound, painted, collaged in, rubber stamped, or otherwise adorned. The pages as well as the covers can be decorated. Decorating the cover of your refill is an option for people who are tired of using a regular cover, and want something more unique, personal and original.
