It's an Altered Book Factory Assembly Line....!

Getting ready for the big class tomorrow. I put together the last two of three kits for the students. The third is the Asian theme pictured in an earlier post.
For the Travel Theme i chose European maps, pages from foreign books - French, Italian and Spanish,some travel images from wrapping paper, some solid mulberry paper in bright tones to match, a tag and a reproduction shipping tag printed on sticker paper, an old postcard image, and some euro postage stamps, a blank slide mount, some yarn and a old key.
The second kit is the bird theme i talked about below - in the spirit of Anna Corba. It includes pages from a floral encyclopedia with lovely plant illustrations, pages from a poetry book. (yeah - nothing is sacred with me - i'll rip apart anything) Some bird illustrations from wrapping paper, some florentine style printed paper, solid brown and gold speckled mulberry paper, some fibers, ribbon and vintage buttons.

I can't wait to see what the students make with these treasures!
