Altered Books - The International Society of Altered Book Artists (ISABA)
The International Society of Altered Book Artists is a non-profit Organization dedicated to promoting altered books as an art form. As the Society's website explains, an altered book is "any book, old or new that has been recycled by creative means into a work of art. They can be ... rebound, painted, cut, burned, folded, added to, collaged in, gold-leafed, rubber stamped, drilled or otherwise adorned." Membership costs $35 a year and entitles you to copies of the Society's bi-annual publication, inclusion in the members' gallery, and access to the password-protected members' area of the site, which features all sorts of goodies.
