Beautiful flowers rest on top of this alteration. Each flower is handmade. Each variety of flower is made from the pages of a different book, giving every variety a slightly different color from the next. There are two dozen flowers total.

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.
A beautiful Geisha stands under a cherry blossom tree in this book alteration. Dressed in a kimono with her hair in a bun, she holds a blossom in her hands.

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.

In magical folklore one could blow dandelion's seeds into the air making a wish at the same time. The seeds carried away by the wind would communicate their will to the divine forces and would ask for their help. The dandelion is associated with the planet of luck and expansion Jupiter and with the element of air.
This ethereal necklace consists of a glass vial that contains dandelion's seeds and two transparent acrylic beads attached on the transparent elastic string. The string measures 60cm/23.6" and the vial measures 4cm/1.57” - 1.5cm/0.59" diameter. The bottle is securely sealed with a metallic button.
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.
A Trigonometry text book from 1920 has been sculpted to depict the face of knowledge. Student's hand written notes can still be seen, scribbled on the sides of pages. This book has belonged to Baldwin University, the Harford County, MD Public School System, and now waits for a new home.
