One thing you can do with old books it create black out or white out poems.
I use the word poem loosely. I like to go through pages and circle words that jump out at me. Then the “poem” makes sense to me, even if it is on a subconscious level.
I love to use the blacking out lines to create patterns, shapes and values. Again it is a meditative process, where I allow the finished product to evolve.
If you would like to explore black out poems and other ways to use books as ART material, then click here to read the details about the online workshop, Books as ART Materials. Registration is open and class starts June 30th.
