Found Poetry, Altered Books.

I've been doing this for about twenty years. I open a book. Find an alternative story inside of it and then paint over unwanted words and dip it in wax.

Please convo me first if you are considering a purchase. These books are made of wax and are very delicate. I will need to look into shipping in dry ice, or something and would need to get a formal shipping quote for you.

This one is from the book "Dune" by Frank Herbert

Here's is the found poetry, the story within the story

“Creatures screaming,
sisters whisper of birth.

Ancient Sisterhood breeding
genetic deficiencies.”

The first few I made were exhibited at the Contemporary Art Museum in Houston, Texas.
Hope you enjoy ; )
