The Book About The Letter A


Where to put this... where to put this >_<
DA could really use a gallery dedicated to altered books. Heh heh..

anyways... now that I have my own scanner I FINALLY got around to putting together some sort of display for this.
I'm sure most of you have forgotten about this by now >_>

So, above are some nice photos of the book in it's whole.. along with some pictures of the book inside the book.
The mini book holds lyrics from a song by a band called Thursday, I've always scribbled the Book About The Letter A on all the covers of my old sketchbooks..
so naturally that's what I named this book >_<

the lyrics: [link]

a little snipet:
"Somewhere a man stands, walks across the room, and breaks his nose against the door
And somewhere these people are keeping records
And writing a book
For now we can call it "The Book About the Basic Flaw
Or "The Book About the Letter A"
Or "Any Title That a Book About a Man That No One Cares About Might Have"


Along the bottom there is artwork from me and from everyone else who submitted some to me.

Starting from the three pieces on the right side..
:iconmonkeydan1: :iconivrim: :iconfresh4u:

from the bottom top row to the left..
:iconfeartehkitty: :iconfrankly-warped: :iconplayxdead: :iconsimanion: :iconsaltyshadow: :iconaudience-of-one:

Now... the bottom row starting from the left..

I have lost record of who did the first one in this row!!! So if you did it let me know!!! ^^;
anywho... continuing on....
:icon777femmefatale777: :iconkizioko: :iconmanage-my-chaos: collab, then, the final piece was done by me(the one of the tomb stone).

This is only a fraction of all the art in this thing!
I will be posting some of my favorite pages separately :P

thank you for your patience. I should have had this done long ago.

OTHER pages from this book!

I have to do one of these for a summer assignment for art and this is really gorgeous. Well anyway, since i've never done one before could you possibly tell me how they're made or maybe give me some pointers? it would really help :)

best of luck with your book!
