Altered Book Continued

Here is the rest of the book of authors:

F. Scott Fitgerald--the decadent era of the 20s


The Bronte Sisters--I had forgotten they published using masculine names with Bell as the surname.


Virginia Woolf--the group picture is of the Bloomsbury group she was a part of. The desk was her writing desk.


Thomas Hardy--his picture is attached to a separator piece using grommets. His signature is attached to the back side. The map is of the Wessex of his fiction and poetry.

Oooh. These are AMAZING. You are so creative.

I love the colors.

Did you do this then? I was a bit lost as you just described the book of authors. I thought maybe you had bought it. It's just lovely! And we have the same taste in literature.

Robyn said...

Thanks, Sassy. The colors look nice on the page but they don't look so great on my laptop monitor.

Lynn, I made this with the help of my daughter. She went back to school after Christmas break, so I finished it up. I have never read Virginia Woolf, but she likes her a great deal. In fact, I managed to find a Virginia Woolf rag doll for her for Christmas--a very odd but lovely little doll she is.

Wonderful, Robyn.
I particularly like the Virginia Woolf one (even though it's one of your daughter's … sorry).

Robyn said...

Hey Dive, don't be sorry. I did that one too while the daughter got ready to go back to school.

Hee hee!

mother, why must you let your blogfriends believe you were generous with your creative genes?!

Robyn said...

daughter #1, they have read your short story, so they know how creative you are.

Gina said...

Wonderful!

Man, I wish I was crafty.

Very cool, Rob... I'm curious how to display it. The items created new layouts for the spreads, right, so you can only have one spread open at a time? They recently did a feature on a. books in our paper.
