National Library Week | Altered Book Contest
An altered book is a form of mixed media artwork that changes a book from its original form into a different form, altering its appearance and/or meaning. Altered books may be as simple as adding a drawing or text to a page, or as complex as creating an intricate book sculpture.
Entries accepted at the Main Library’s Art, Music & Media Department March 25–April 3. Winners and prizes will be announced April 10 on the ACPL Facebook page. Altered Books will be on display at the Main Library April through June 30, 2017. The ACPL reserves the right not to display all entries. Incomplete entry forms will not be accepted. Call (260) 421–1200 ext. 2104 with questions.
