Excellent book for the first time Altered Book Artist. I especially recommend this book for people teaching classes and people wanting to learn the most basic skills for this medium. I found it very helpful.
This is actually the book that got me into altered art. I think it's a great book for learning the basics.

Great book for the new altered artist, answers all the early questions!
The projects are dated but I liked the simplicity of the directions.
Great book for the alter artist.
