Altered States, Part II

A good neighbor asked that I put more information on the altered book show in the blog. I'm pasting the information from the official brochure here.
Give us a call at the store if you have questions (303) 572-2260.
No, you do not need to use any of our "alterable" books.

Don’t just recycle your old books!
and recreate them!

Miss Prothero’s Books and
Tangerine Book Arts are sponsoring an altered Book project.
Are you an artist, Book Lover or Poet?
Want to be part of the project?
Here’s how it works.
Come to Miss Prothero’s Books
at 1112 N. Santa Fe Drive, pick the Perfect tome from the “Alterable Book” shelf,
then fold, spindle, cut, paste, revise and recreate.
When you’re done with your Books, enter them into Miss P’s annual altered book exhibition.
An entry fee of $10 per book or $25 for 3 books will be charged.
Judging for this juried Exhibition will take place October 1, 2007.
Your entries must be at Miss Prothero’s by September 30 no later than 6 P.M.
The opening reception is October 5, 7 p.m. to 9 p.M.
The closing reception is November 2 from 7 p.m to 9 p.m.
Come to the November 2 reception prepared to celebrate the death of the exhibition.
Need a little push to get started?
Nancy Missbach of Tangerine Book Arts will give an informal talk on the altered book
at Miss Prothero’s Books on Friday, September 21, from 7 P.M. to 9 P.m. This talk is free and open to the public. Nancy will also teach an altered book workshop on September 23, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The cost of the class is $50 plus a materials fee. The class will be held at
