Last fall I offered a new reading and art group called Bookends, and we read, discussed, and did an art response based on the book, Belonging by Toko-pa Turner (highly recommended!). Those who participated really enjoyed the process, and I’m thrilled at how well it’s been received. We gathered our weekly art response into book form – a visual connection from one book to another – expressed in colour, image, and words. This round we altered a book; one of my favourite ways to re-purpose a book and keep it out of the landfill.
Here are some of my altered book pages and visual response to the winter book selection, Dancing with the Gods: Reflections on Life and Art by Kent Nerburn.
