Altered book!







I have started a project for my brother in laws birthday. I found an old copy of Sir Walter Scott's "Fortunes of Nigel" and the title made me imagine a little boy called Nigel going off out into the world to explore and have adventures.
This is what I am basing my altered book on.. here is what I have come up with so far!
