      What a great book on collage. this one differs from most of the other collage books out there as this one features collage collaborations with the author and different people from around the world. both paper collage and digital collage is featured in the book. there's almost no text - just page on page of collages. the starters that were given to certain people and what they look like after the collaboration has been completed. i was happy to see even some people from taiwan were in the book.
