A new altered book
Since november last year I have done more than making a flagbook .
I have also made a new altered book.
It is a very old book ( dating from the 1800’s) and I had to handle it with even more care than I allready do.
Yes! This book has words! Lots of words! It even has a story!
( Inpired by ” Vertrokken met onbekende bestemming ” ( Destination unknown) I invented “Mister Tobbe” who does not want to live in his country anymore and works on a ship to see how living on another continent will be. He travels to Aferika, by witchcraft enters dreamland and returns to become a CEO of a multinational. )
I am happy to show you some parts and hope you will also see how old the book is.
frontcover of De wonderlijke reis van de heer Tobbe
the paper is old, brittle and yellowed
Also the Bank has something to do with his departure in the old car of his father
He is flabbergasted by the richdom of some Afericans
After crossing the continent he sits in a little shelter in a cherry=orchard when magic enters
he arrives in Dreamland
