Raiders Of The Lost Art - The Abandoned Attic

My next Featured Seller is Susan Hoerth, hailing from McAllen, Texas. I ran across her Etsy shop today while searching for Unusual things. It was her Altered Books that captured my imagination. The following is information from her shop profile:

"Collecting bits and pieces from my travels around the world and assembling them into a fine art collection of Curios, is my passion. I have an eye for collecting vintage items to retell stories of the past, bring new life and preserving memories. Each piece that I design includes a mixture of the discarded, and forgotten ordinary moments in everyday life. As of late I have had an obsession with restoring and creating pieces of art with antique books that have been discarded. 

"If you have a favorite book that you would like sculpted, I do consignments. The book should be old and unusable as a book, and have a few illustrations in it. I am open to style and prices are flexible. Contact me through Etsy for details and of course it will be listed reserve. You can see more of my works on my BlogI feature direction on how to make Altered Book popups. Check it out!!!"
