When I conceived this book, I went through all my materials and scraps to pull everything leaf-related. The process itself was great fun, but more importantly it reminded me what else I had waiting tucked away for other projects. It is often a joke among my friends how I continuously organize, sort, and arrange all my materials, but just going through them is an enormous inspiration - every bit as much as books and magazines.
