There are more artists working in altered books beyond the ones I’ve listed here, but these are some of my favorites. If you’ve come across book-related art you’d like to share, please do leave a comment.

  1. These are all so amazing; as are the ones in the first post. That anyone can even conceive of these yet alone implement then is incredible.

  2. That’s exactly how I feel about this work. It really inspires me to push myself further with my own style of altered books.

  3. You’re welcome. Her work is seriously amazing. I keep trying to figure out if I can add moving parts to my own book work.
