Paper Stacks at The Altered Page

The Altered Page aka Seth Apter, is hosting blogs featuring stacks - paper, books, stuff. My house is full of stacks so these are just a few of them. These are books I've made, a mix of artist's books and traditional bindings.

Then there's just stacks, all slightly wonky, ready to topple, and a bit scary. Boxes, and books.

Visit The Altered Page to see a list of all the participating blogs. Or just visit anyway because it's a really interesting blog for artists and book artists.

  18. Oh! lor'...you don't want to see the clutter on my kitchen table (which is the outdoor picnic table because the dining table has been appropriated for book-y stuff and a ream of new paper...)

    And I wouldn't let Ronnie anywhere near that lot with her flame-thrower! (Just as well she's gone to Melbourne!)

  19. WOW! Those handmade journals with their awesome stitching, are fabulous. Of course, I like all the ones that look like they are going to topple over at any second, too. You have some great stacks! Sorry I'm late arriving, but I'm determined to see all the stacks by the end of today.
