Should I or shouldn't I? This princess is debating her pucker as she evaluates her amphibian companion. Looking regal in her hat, shawl, and gown the princess sits atop a collection of Grimm's Fairy Tales, published in the 50's.
Shakespeare's characters take the stage in this book alteration. Illustrations depict scenes from "The Taming Of The Shrew", "The Merchant Of Venice", "Much Ado About Nothing", "As You Like It", "All's Well That Ends Well", and "Love's Labor's Lost". The characters stand on three stages, with others watching in the audience.
Yes, the edges cut inside of the book are a little rough, but I like it. It gives the alteration an "old" feeling, for lack of a better word. The book's pages were really not much thicker then tissue paper. When you're trying to fit multiple Shakespeare plays in one book I suppose you have to make the pages as thin as possible. Not easy to work with, but I like the overall effect.
The book altered is "The Works of Shakespeare: The Comedies" 1950.

Commissioned piece of Steven King's Dark Tower series. Made from book 7, the dark tower is made from over 300 bricks and stands over 12" tall. Roland stands on the lower right corner, about to cross the field of roses.
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.

Do you have a card game enthusiast in your life? Maybe you are one yourself? In this sculpture a hand bursts through the pages to offer up his cards. The book depicted holds Magic the Gathering cards, but any type can be used. How about a Royal Flush?
When ordering, please message me the cards and suit you would like used. If you'd like cards for a specific game (Magic, Pokemon, etc.) you will need to supply those cards. I can use a book in a color of your choosing, or if you'd like a specific title I can find it for an additional fee.
I made this one for my best friend's wedding. She asked me to use some books for centerpieces at her reception, of course I said yes. I also decided to make the bride and groom books unique to them. This one is for the groom. He played Magic in high school.
