Here are some of my altered books. They are often inspired by nature, stories and poetry. I sell them in my Folksy Reflections Shop, my Etsy Shop and in a few galleries. I’m interested in taking commissions. Contact me here.
My first altered book:
Angel Altered Book
Sleeping Badger Altered Book
I created this altered book from an old Observer guide. The book opens on to the scene on the first page and I glued most of the pages together. Sold to a good home.
Again this is created from an old Observer guide. Sold to a good home.
Deer in the Forest
This I created from a second hand medium sized hard back book I bought in a charity shop. Now sold to a good home.
Silver Apples of the Moon, Golden Apples of the Sun
This altered book was inspired by the poem, “Song of the Wandering Aengus” by W.B.Yeats. I have a black and white one and a coloured one for sale.
Nest in the Woods
A medium sized altered book created out of a second hand book. Inspired by spring.
Kelp Maiden Altered Book
The Edge of the Wood
I love hares. The two books below feature hares at the woodland edge.
Hares of the Woodland Edge
I love deer too.
Another Observer’s guide:
Badger Family Altered Book
As part of my Slow Loris project I made a Loris Forest altered book:
The Alchemist Altered Book
Tropical Forest Altered book
