The information on collage techniques is very helpful, as one would expect from a book about collage. But the illustrations are the book's key asset. These collages are simply outstanding.

This is geared towards people with art training who want to use collage to make art pieces. It is an excellent sampling of many techniques with lots of pictures of people's work. There is also a great deal of material on design. It was mostly too advanced for my current level of making greeting cards with found images, but it's something to aspire to. You will get more out of it if you have some training in painting or drawing.
