The Alphabellishment Fat Book Arrived!

Last month I posted about a fat book swap hosted by the Altered Art Fat Book Yahoo group.

The book has arrived and all I can say is WOW!  What a fabulous piece of art that Kathleen put together.  Here is the cover.

look at how fat and embellished these pages are.

Here is the index page describing the cover and how it was made

And here is the index that lists each page, artist and the letter they chose.

I did not photograph each page (I do not have permission from the artists to do so.), but wanted you to see the finished book.  Beautiful!

    Wonderful fat book…wish we could see inside, but I agree with your decision…copyright should be sacred…great cover & index pages…now I should be motivated to finish up some of the swap stuff I haven’t made into books yet! thanks for sharing!

    I read about these fat book swaps in “Cloth, Paper, Scissors” Magazine and I’ve always wanted to try one. How do you get involved? And, how does it work? This looks like so much fun. It turned out really colourful and pretty. Does someone just pick a theme and everyone contributes a page?

    (I found you on This N’ That’s blog… Nice to meet you!)
