Susan Hoerth is a talented artist from McAllen, Texas, United States. She creates amazingly beautiful compositions, sculptures out of old books, bringing them to life. She says ‘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’.

Shakespeare paper theater, art by Susan Hoerth

“The Victorian era is one of the most interesting times for book illustrations, particularly for children’s books. During this time and into the early 1920s, most books were illustrated with woodcuts or black and white prints, later with hints of color and brilliant collections of illustrated texts. This combination with the yellow aging of thick paper made for the perfect cuts, and assemblage. When I search for a book to reconstruct, I need it to be a challenge. If the binding is falling apart I enjoy fixing it. If pages are ripped or tattered, I enjoy the process of finding a way to include them in the images or the creative process of working around all the imperfections that age has caused. The more the better; it is the problem-solving that makes it all worth it”.
