This was the latest book for my altered book swap run by our fearless leader Diane. It’s called Written on the Body and it features Victorian nudes.

I do find that I’m getting so much better! On the left page is a transparency attached with paper clips over tissue paper which I stamped lightly on. In the center is a “flag book” format where if you pull on the ribbon, it flips out and you can see the whole postcard. If you’d like to see it, here it is (but it is a nude!).

For the second page, I have a handmade background paper on the right and on the left is a dress pattern tissue paper (which I thought brought out the irony since she’s not wearing clothes!) with a figure and another text transparency attached with a brad.

The third page (the first time I’ve had time to do three pages!) is a vellum pocket with the postcard in it and the left is from a retail paper bag.

Lastly, one side of the sign-in tage was a book page, with tissue paper stamped with letter and a sticker with my name and date on it. The second side is featured below and it’s a magazine photo with a question mark. What I was trying to suggest that if women were taking photographs, the results probably would have been different.
