This gorgeous, inspirational guide to collage is the first book to combine a review of collage with a practical section on how to do it. A beautifully illustrated survey of stunning work by contemporary artists is accompanied by a general introduction looking at masters of the medium, from Picasso, to Richard Hamilton, to Peter Blake.

An extremely accessible art form, collage requires very little material to get started and this book shows you how. Practical instruction includes advice on structure and composition, creating black and white tonal collage, using contrast, experimenting with colour, incorporating printmaking techniques, and mounting and displaying work.
