Adele Moreau is a London based artist. She constructs altered books from a variety of found media such as vintage encyclopedias, natural history books and illustrated science manuals. By re appropriating discarded items and preserving and enhancing what is often overlooked, she transforms them into objects of fascination.
Her current series of altered books are inspired by the work of American artists such as Brian Dettmer. The original illustrations are carefully selected page by page and delicately hand-cut to reveal a hidden narrative while still keeping the integrity of the original book intact.
