The Pocket Scavenger

by Keri Smith - £12.99  Penguin Books Ltd (Particular Books) (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781846147098 | ISBN 10: 1846147093

Welcome to the highly inspirational world of Keri Smith. Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, readers will be instructed to collect a spectrum of quirky items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more.
 
Then, once their quarry is in hand, they'll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, conceal it, add polkadots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, duplicate it (make a copy), fold, cut into pieces & rearrange, turn into an article of clothing, trace it/use the shape as basis for a new drawing, make it 'pretty', and so on.
 
It's funny, moving, silly and serious. The way you look at things will never be the same again.
