Art Journals and Altered Books: Frida Kahlo's Letters
My first altered book, a selection of Frida Kahlo's letters found online. The book, originally a lifestyle book with heavy paper pages. First I pulled out quite a few of the pages and then covered the book cover with a sheet of Financial Times newspaper, which I painted over with acrylic paint. Then I pasted a photograph of Frida and some of her letters.
