Altered Books

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.

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.
