fairy-tale castle book alteration by Nilanja fairy-tale castle book alteration by Nilanja
I have started this book alteration months ago...it took me ages ot finish. but now it is done and I am glad that I finalized it!
It is my first book alteration ever - and probably my last.
it was simply too much work...and I made too many beginners mistakes.
I started it because I have seen this book alteration and was so fascinated! I wondered if I am able to do this too...and so I did this^^

I will include it into a conceptual photo I think...but I am not sure how yet^^

hope you like it :heart:

Wow! What a brilliant idea. I just love the castle-out-of-book-concept, I guess that's how it's like to read fantasy-books, or, I can see "castle" as a symbol of creation itself, the kind of creation which happens when reading a book.

I'm facsinated of the fact that you actually made this thing, and at the same time it hurts my feelings to think about the book you destroyed to make it. May I ask which book you killed, or is it up to my own head?

Anyways, it looks gorgeous, and the book-three is the perfect little detail that completes the artwork.

I would love to see the background as deep red instead of dark blue, because I think that's more castle-ish and more creativity-ish, when it comes to symbols. Deep purple would also be quite cool, at least you should think about it.
What do you think?

Wow - Wahnsinn!
Ich hab schon öfters solche Arbeiten gesehen, aber selber war mir sowas immer zu anstrengend,
also kann ich gut nachvollziehen, dass das so ewig gedauert hat - das dauert schon eine Weile.
Gratulation zur Fertigstellung - toll Arbeit - sieht super aus =)

You said it was your first book alteration, so you must have had to look up tips on how to do it, yes? Or did you actually come up with it yourself? O:
