Deconstructing Books

….to reconstruct them. I search for just the right sizes of books and sturdy covers to reconstruct them into altered books and artist journals. I discovered these National Geographic books at the Yellow House thrift shop. I will have to go see if they have more since they have all the elements I look for; heavy canvas covers, great heavy gloss paper photo pages and the text pages are hot pressed  40 lb. watercolor paper.

Here are photos of the deconstructed books waiting to Become.
