Beautiful Altered Book Art

Altered books is an art form where an old book is cut, torn, glued, drawn and sown layer by layer to create an artwork. Sometimes the pages are disassembled and then rearranged in a way that the end result has an enhanced meaning often conveyed through text or phrases.  

I am enamored with these altered book art by Polist artist Monika also known as moniq75k. Her work is densely layered, as you can see in the images showing details above, and colorful with an element of story telling with its imaginary characters.
