The Altered Books art series brings characters to life in a very crafty way. As its name clearly suggests, it revolves around vintage books that have been altered in such a way that their classic illustrations appear to be spilling right out of the confines of the novels themselves. By redesigning these discarded storybooks, the Altered Books series also offers a new perspective that will awaken people's imaginations even more.

Created by Susan Hoerth, an artist based in Texas and who is also known as Raidersofthelostart, the Altered Books series makes for stunning art pieces that would bring a whimsical touch to any home. Hoerth writes, "I have an eye for collecting vintage items to retell stories of the past, bring new life and preserving memories."
