Altered Book - Marie Antoinette

Altered Book for Round Robin with the theme Marie Antoinette. I really enjoy working with historical themes because I love reading all about the times of the theme. This topic was fascinating and I learned a lot doing the research for these pages.





First spread shows the first portrait on the left of Marie in casual cotton gown and on the right - the repainted portrait after the public uproar - repainted to show her much more "queen-like". The public claimed the first one looked like she was in her underwear!


Pull-out tags tell the story of the portraits.

Spread showing Marie and her Hameau de la Reine - a village she had built on the grounds of Versaille to replicate French  village life. She often went there and dressed as a milk-maid.
Fold-out on the left shows a collection of Marie's shoes, which according to the etiquette of the times, she had 4-6 pairs of shoes made each week.

Hi Tricia, thank you so much for your lovely comment. I'm delighted you found my page inspiring, and so glad you came to visit so that I could find your fabulous blog too. I've been having a wander around and I love your altered books (there's an altered book arrived over at mine just now that you might like!). From not being able to "desecrate" an old book, altering them and using them as journals has become one of my favourite things to do.

I'm signing up to follow here, and looking forward to seeing lots more of your wonderful work.
