Artist's books inspired by found text and materials

I like to think secret messages from the universe show up in odd places, we have to look for them and be alert. It's a gift to open the newspaper or a book and see words that spark a new idea. Here is a blog post about using found text as a source of inspiration. Similarly a material can spark an idea. Metamorphic Suite came about while I was playing with polymer clay. Wave and My O.K. came from left over bits of metal.
