a midweek fantasy among altered books and faery tales...

I've always loved books, altered books, paper art, faery tales, and scherenschnitte - so, I've collected a few photos of art pieces that combine various parts of these elements into vignettes of faery tales.

The perfect midweek fantasy outing - and artisan appreciation!

"The Snow Queen"
 "The Twelve Dancing Princesses"
 "The Wild Swans"
 "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"
 "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs"
"The Princess and the Pea"

and ... if these aren't fantasy enough - imagine an entire stage - or display window - filled with them!

Hope you've enjoyed today's book art fantasies!

Now, go make something beautiful!

Hello, Tristan,

A very belated visit, first to thank you for your visit to Marmelade Gypsy -- I'm so glad you came by and left such a great comment!

One of the best thing about blog visits is that you discover new things you like and when I fell into this post with these beautiful book "adaptations" (not to mention your White Rabbit on your page design) I knew I found a new blog to enjoy. And I look forward to many more visits for both of us!
