Do you have any large altered books available for sale? Do you take commissions?
Any large altered books available for sale will be shown on the Shop tab. Please reach out for inquiries. Commissions for 2020 are closed.
When will you have altered books listed?
At this time I manage to create a 2-3 books per year. I also have to work very slow on them to prevent tearing or further damage (if repairs were needed). I appreciate your patience!
How do you choose the books that you use? Why do you cut them up?
All of the books I use are either donated or found, and many of them need repairs in order to carve. I make sure they are not valuable beforehand. Many damaged books end up in landfills or left forgotten – this is my effort to both reuse and give them a new life.
What materials do you use?
