Gabe Cyr, a recognized leader in the altered-book community, is a strong advocate of the creative possibilities of this craft.

The 15 inventive ideas include books that are turned into functional objects, such as clocks or picture frames. Other projects reinvent traditional book forms and shapes, such as the accordion and circle design. Inspiring examples of collaborative altered books and round-robins are also included.
