Palimpsest: a selection of altered books

March 7, 2023 – March 31, 2023
Decker Library
1401 W Mt Royal Ave

Whether shredded, collaged, painted over, cut away, or sewn into, altered books use the book as a complex canvas for new and innovative work. Beyond simply defacing, altered books make new meaning out of something old, or transform an old story into something never seen before. This display explores the many different ways artists have creatively defaced books and publications creating something entirely unique and special.
