I've finally completed my Altered Book (Artist Book); The Dreambook. I don't remember when I started but earlier this year and I'm happy to say I finished the cover up yesterday. This began as the book; The Landscapes of the Night by Christopher Evans. I'm the type that likes to stick with the theme of the book that's already there, for the most part. This book dealt with how dreams and sleep are important to humans and explored many facets of the unconscious mind. So I stuck with it.
Inside Front Cover: I debated about using just a simple patterned paper here to just cover up my "mess". I was actually working on the back cover when I realized I could simply paint the inside cover. This quote from Poe seemed to fit like a glove.
My background black paint has a pearlescent additive mixed in to give it a sparkling gleam in some places. How could I not doctor up my simple circle moon? Especially since my niece told me, "The moon has holes in it" when she and I were drawing Halloween pictures last month.
I finished up the last pages in this Artist Book but they are nothing spectacular so this completes the documentary on The Dreambook.
