Altered Books and Found Poetry


Laura Thykeson from The Altered Book Nook takes us into her wonderful world of altered books and found poetry with her “Reading between the Lines” article

The found poetry, or altered text, is made by finding words on a page of an altered book that can be connected to tell a story. Laura connects her words with dark highlighting, then paints out all of the other words, allowing her altered text story to show through. Then many other mixed media art techniques can be used to decorate the pages and embellish your story.
