More Altered books

Andrew has been working on other altered books. On the theme of photography and how old photos, that were created near the birth of photography, show people and places long past that somehow and mysteriously seem real to us now.

The next follows a similar exploration of the power of old photographs to evoke the past, adding maps from a modern road atlas, showing how the countryside has been traversed by roads.

Wall Hanging

Amanda is working on a wall hanging, as she explains: "I've been stitching a wall hanging out of waste paper. It's growing organically! There's a lot of green in it, it's basically about the idea of things coming full circle. At present it consists of separate elements."
