This altered book by Meg Kennedy, found on the New York Center for Book Arts artist website, is altered into a mini curio cabinet displaying forms of media, with a little stone tablet, scroll, accordion book / pamphlet, Japanese-bound book, chalkboard, codex, and CD drive inserted into the open text block. The book is transformed into a cabinet, a display case, a bookshelf, and a sculpture, and it’s still a book.
