If you have ever wanted to try collage, this is the book for you! Artist and writer Claudine Hellmuth believes that all arts express the self, but in collage, where inspiration can come from an exquisite shell found on a favorite beach, a prized family photo, a map or antique crate labels, your creative spirit speaks the most freely of all.

Claudine Hellmuth is recognized as one of the world's most gifted collage artists. Her work has been licensed and reproduced book covers, greeting cards, rubber stamps and fine art posters. Claudine has taken time from her busy schedule to write the most comprehensive instruction book on collage that I have read. She introduces you to the tools and techniques she uses to create her award-winning collages. Her easy to follow instructions guide you through twelve creative exercises to practice your newfound skills.

If you are fortunate and can arrange to take one of Claudine's workshops or classes that are offered across the United States, you will find her to be generous and giving with her knowledge, time and expertise. Until then, her book is a necessity for every creative person's library. On a scale of 1 to 10, it's a 9+.
