Paper artist/magician Louise Phillips has created “altered books,” a new art installation for Upstart & Crow, and we love it so much! Please join us on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 4 p.m. at Upstart & Crow for an artist’s talk about the installation and the joys of making.
Altered books are books first found and then transformed. The book sleeves, covers, and pages become the materials of transformation. The books do remain true to themselves, and they also become something new and different.
Vancouver artist Louise Phillips draws, folds paper, makes artist books including zines and altered books, and leads drawing classes. For more information, please visit LouisePhillips.ca.
