A new altered book

Since november last year I have done more than making a flagbook .

I have also made a new altered book.

It is a very old book  ( dating from the 1800’s) and I had to handle it with even more care than I allready do.

Yes! This book has words! Lots of words! It even has a story!

(  Inpired by ” Vertrokken met onbekende bestemming  ” ( Destination unknown) I invented “Mister Tobbe” who does not want to live in his country anymore and works on a ship to see how living on another continent will be. He travels to Aferika, by witchcraft enters dreamland and returns to become a CEO of a multinational.  )

I am happy to show you some parts and hope you will also see how old the book is.
