Sticks and Stones Altered Book

I have a 2-volume set of the O.E.D. complete with magnifying glass in drawer. I’ve been using pages for my “Incubating Poetry” series of mixed media nests but have always planned to use the actual books for an altered book art piece. I’ve entertained various ideas in the past 18 months since I acquired it (that’s another story).

I’m working on a show called “Words Can Never Hurt Me” – and had this thought that I’d make the book into a Sticks and Stones piece. Sticks in one; stones in the other. That’s as far as I’ve gotten, but I like it.

So started doing a bit of googling to inspire me about next steps. Here are a couple of references for you – and me:
