Feeling creative? So get in the act! The Enoch Pratt Free Library is proud to announce it's Altered Books Competition.
An altered book is any book that has been recycled by creative means into a work of art. They can be rebound, painted, cut, burned, folded, added to, collaged in, rubber stamped, drilled or otherwise adorned. Altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page, or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture.
All entries to the competition should be received no later than 1 p.m. on Saturday, September 26. Prizes will be awarded to the top three altered books. The top 15 altered books will be on display at the Central Library in October.
You can also join the Pratt Library at the Baltimore Book Festival on Friday, September 25, 6 to 8 pm, and make your own altered book. The library will provide old books and supplies for free.
