Books, birds and text – playing with books.

Once I got over the seemingly shocking idea of altering an antique book, which I confess seems rather destructive and insensitive initially, I have been altering a tiny broken antique book with some additional text and images. I think its a start, rather than a completed “thing”.

I do, however, like the contrast between the tiny, original and formal print and the larger, more random text I have added. The new images a nod to the common thread of fragility of old books and tiny birds.
