What else can you do with a book?

Visit Bellevue Art Museum's exhibit The Book Borrowers: Contemporary Artists Transforming the Book and you might be surprised! In this case books form the raw material that artists transform almost beyond recognition.

Other people engage in book arts: creating books that are works of art in themselves and in which the form enhances the content. Special Collections at the University of Washington library in Suzzallo has a magnificent book arts collection that I highly recommend.
