I will do a series of posts on altered books. If this is something that does not interest you, then please skip over it. If you subscribe, please do not unsubscribe because of this. I will also be posting other techniques and projects that I will be doing. Just delete the altered books emails if you don't do that.
Some good sites for altered books are
http://www.alteredbookartists.com/ This is the society for altered books.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/alteredbooks/This is the huge-o Yahoo group for altered books. I am no longer a member. It is a great place to glean information and get resources. They also have some great swaps and round robins.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ABAlteredBooks/ Smaller AB (altered book) Yahoo group with very friendly people. They have a lot of good swaps and RRs here as well.
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/abc_alteredbookclub/ This is a very friendly Yahoo group with a smaller membership. My friend, Elizabeth, runs it. They have some great tip-in swaps and AB swaps/RRs.

http://www.alteredbook.com/ Beth Cote's site. She has some great stuff for AB'ers starting out.
