I've been doing this for about twenty years. I open a book. Find an alternative story inside of it and then paint over unwanted words and dip it in wax.
Please convo me first if you are considering a purchase. These books are made of wax and are very delicate. I will need to look into shipping in dry ice, or something and would need to get a formal shipping quote for you.
This one is from the book "Out of Africa" by Isak Dinesen
