Artist's books inspired by dreams and memories

I don't often make books based on dreams. I like to record my dreams to encourage myself to think in terms of a dream-like atmosphere. But mostly they are kept private. Occasionally a dream feels important and has such strong visual parts that I like to put it in a book. Childhood memories fill a similar spot, they are the basis of who I am, a part of me that has always been there. I usually don't spell them out for people, but I do like to honor them at times. Although if you get me reminscing I will tell you a bunch about my childhood. One book here is based on my husband's childhood. It resonates with me as well. There are blog posts here and here about using dreams as inspiration. And a blog post here about using childhood memories as inspiration.
