Altered Book Project

The book I have chosen for the Altered Book project is The Art of Skating. It's a beautiful little book and was published in 1913 - so very old!

Because the book is so beautiful and has such a precious feel to it I am conscious that I don't want to be too destructive. I would like to work 'for' the book rather than the book working 'for' me.

I am considering approaching the project with a quite literal response to the book so I have begun sketching people ice skating to get a feel of the movement involved.
