Altering Used Books As a New Form of Art

Altered used books are a completely new way to change a used book from its original state to create a new work of art that many individuals and artists alike have recently found to be an enjoyable form of expression. Normally, the artist or individual will take old, used books that no longer have any value left due to the fact that their pages have been worn in the purpose of creating a new form of value in it once again.

For individuals and artist to be able to create this altered book then these individuals or artists may want to cut or tear the pages, then they might use glue or paints to add collages, gold effects, or pop ups to their new creations. These altered books have been known to have pockets created within their pages to hold tags, rock, or other memorabilia while some other altered books have had their shape completely changed. Artists of this new form of art work seem to be very found of various types of Victorian art work, which adds a type of antique look to these newly devised used books. Altered books have become so popular that they are being offered at many famous art galleries and all over the Internet, which is due to their uniqueness.

Altering books takes creativity and patience along with any used books that could stand to be recycled. Bound used books are used to create this new form of art through what ever means the artist may decide, which can be used as a conversation piece or as even as a journal. Some individuals alter used books to help them to work through personal or emotional issues or for many other reasons that are unknown to the viewer. Some of these altered used books may create certain themes, while others strictly express the personality of the artist.

Altering books actually began back during the medieval era. During this period it was very common for individuals to reuse their parchment for economic reasons, which was done by either scraping, rubbing, or simply covering the original text. This early form of altering books was known as palimpsest. Now during modern times, artists may paint, type, draw, and create different types of collages on every single page as a way to create clusters within the original text to express new forms of poetry.

The different types of materials and equipment that individuals and artists will use to create these altered books include a variety of decorative scissors, paper punches, a variety of rubber stamps and inks, paints, fibers, brads, embellishments, eyelets, and buttons. Other material may include chalks of regular and pastel colors, pens, markers, ribbons, tissue paper, beads, charms, cording, feathers, lace, different types of fabric, napkins, rhinestones, and any other material that the individual feels comfortable with using. The terrific thing surrounding this new form of art is that ultimately any type of object can be used in a variety of ways to create some unique form of art.

Music As an Expression of Identity

Since the beginning of time, music has been used as an expression of cultural identity. Ancient tribal societies used music as a foundation for gatherings and to express their history, ethnicity, and cultural beliefs. Music has changed throughout the ages, but the use of music as an essential part of cultural and individual expression has changed very little.

Music’s integral connection to identity is often difficult to recognize, especially in today’s society where music may not be viewed as being as message-oriented as it once was. There were times when entire generations or cultures of individuals each knew the same songs. During World War II, entire nations of people sang songs that expressed their national identity with their cause and their connection to their fighting forces. Again, with the protest songs of the 1960’s and 1970’s, the people of the nation explored their feelings about war, youth, and racial unrest. And, as music as a form of expression has grown, different individuals within the same society have come to identify with varying forms of music as their own individual expression of self.

Although music may not be as blatantly descriptive as the songs of decades past, music speaks to the individual in the same way that the individual speaks through music. A nation of parents sat perplexed as their children became entranced by the sounds of rock and roll, and now there are as many types of music to identify with as there are generational cliques to adapt the musical message. Parents are still perplexed by youth who dress like Britney Spears and Eminem and who use language expressed in song. The addition of music videos has also added a note to self-expression through music that wasn’t present until the last few years. Unlike past generations, today’s youth can see how the music is being expressed and can identify visually with their chosen genre. Television and the internet have also allowed international peoples to share their cultures through music.

Whether music is viewed as being an influence on youth or as being influenced by youth, is still secondary to the fact that it has always been present as a socializing factor. Whether that socialization takes place as a part of a group membership or as a way to express individuality, there is no way to ignore the fact that the influence and expression of music expands as the world community shares more of its musical styles. People may find that music speaks to them in a certain way, moves them in a certain way, or that they identify with its message. People may also find that they can use music to express themselves as individuals as well as to conform to a group. Doubtless, music and its connection to individual and group identity will take on new forms as people continue to be exposed to varying forms of music and culture.
