Throughout the year of 2012/2013, book artists across Alberta participated in a 'round robin' collaboration. Members of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild created altered books - choosing a theme and rules around which the group of artists would gradually transform the chosen books into works of art. The artists, including myself, worked on the books on monthly rotation, responding creatively to the original artist's vision and rules of engagement. The results are a stunning and imaginative series of works, each filled with the altering work of several different artists. In November 2015 the show, “Altered States” brought a collection of these works together for public display at Elevation Gallery in Canmore as part of their One White Wall Project. This is my Pippi Longstocking book.
