Altered Books Art

I made art using books because one day I cut a book. Really. I did it... I don't know why... It was an old book, that nobody was going to read again (too strange book...), so I thought, "I have to do something with it...". And... I cut it, and it became another object, with another king of utility... I loved the idea.
For the process, I always do the same: first of all, I open the book, and... I begin to work without thinking....
I love this.

Very clever, but I hope this trend for bastardising books soon comes to an end.

So sorry that you don’t like this kind of work… I understand you: I love books and at first look, it can be shocking…. I use only old books, that it’s not possible to read (Part II without the part I, damaged books, …)… I just try to give them another life…. ;)

Marie Powers

I think your work is extremely well crafted, and kudos to you for using only damaged books – I fear there are people out there who don’t have your scruples, ie the individual who ‘hollows-out’ books to make fairy houses???? Thanks for your response and giving me a better understanding.

Thank you for publishing my work ;))
