My latest page for Altered Books

Altered Books is a poetry project run by my friend and poet extraordinaire, Dan Waber. The idea is simple:

Cut the bindings off of books found at a used book store. Find poems in the pages by the process of obliteration. Put pages in the mail and send them all around the world. Lather, rinse, repeat.
