Pirate Ship Book Alteration by wetcanvas Pirate Ship Book Alteration by wetcanvas
A pirate ship is fighting the stormy seas and exploding out of the pages! "Kidnapped" by Robert Louise Stevenson was fist published in 1886. The volume altered in this piece is later, around the 1950's. The rough waves are sculpted from the books pages, while the ship (constructed from another book due to the fragility of the "Kidnapped" book's pages) cuts through the pages, making waves of it's own.

This all started with my husband saying, "I'm not sure if you can..." Really, now? Never tell me I can't make something. So, I was up until two last night making this. And guess who got to stay up and help me...

This version is sold, but I do currently have a remake: [link]. My shop: [link]

I'm always torn (sorry about the pun) between admiration and sadness when i see this form of art. On one hand you destroyed a book :sadtard:but, you also turned that book into a cool piece of art :admire:.

I know what you mean.  If it makes you feel any better, I try to only use books that are headed for the trash cans.  I get them at yard sales, second hand stores, even a garbage can once or twice.  Just a more artistic form of recycling :)
