A Word From the Author:
Many art critics called collage the most revolutionary artistic innovation of the twentieth century. In some ways collage is revolutionary and reactionary at the same time. Collage techniques range from simple craft creations based on centuries-old customs to innovative constructions made possible by modern technology.
Collage can be as simple or as complicated as you like. Anyone can do it. Take this fascinating medium as far as you want to go. Reach for the stars from the top of the Ferris wheel. Just turn the page-and hold on tight." --Nita Leland
