This project created by artist Jody Alexander involves altering books and is called 'Sedimentals'.
"Jody Alexander is an artist, bookbinder, librarian and teacher who lives and works in Santa Cruz, California. She binds books with found and discarded papers and fabric in a number of historical and modern binding styles. She combines these books with found objects to create sculptural works. Her pieces celebrate collecting, storytelling, and odd characters. She also likes to rescue discarded books and give them new life as scrolls, wall pieces and sculptural objects. Her characters, books, sculptural pieces and found items are often combined to create installations."
