I love cutting up words/phrases and making surrealist stories. I've been doing this with newspapers, books, and magazines since I was a kid. Here is a little book I did last night when I had insomnia. The mount is paper that I handmade from onion skins and filler pulp. I am going to bind this with wire.
The books I sampled from were:
Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand (my fave book ever)
Animal Farm by George Orwell
An old children's science book
