The perfect gift for any book lover! Imagine handing your favorite book work this antique hardbound book, lovely in itself, to have them flip the cover to find a bouquet of roses. The first 250 pages of this book have been carved away and with them six roses, tied with a bow, have been sculpted. The book is from the Grolier Classics collection. Published in 1956, this volume holds Jane Eyre (Bronte), Maxims and Reflections (La Rochefoucauld), Essays of Elia (Lamb), and The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.

Two roses have been made out of the pages of "The Secret Garden". They stand on a painted wooden base under a glass dome. The butterfly on the base is also made from "The Secret Garden". Dome stands approximately 9" high by 6" wide. Glass dome is removable.

I'm not sure this can be called a book alteration, but since I used left over pages from a previous alteration, I'm going to go with it.
