My introduction to collage was through the study of design in the photographic image. Our instructor gave us a series of assignments to cut images from magazines to produce meaningful collages and montages. Having absolutely no background in these areas made this something of a daunting task for some of us. It initially seemed devoid of direction or identifiable purpose.

The objective was to have students broaden their thinking; in fact, to expand their minds in terms of design scope within their images. And the process worked.

Having been introduced to collage and wishing to learn more about it, I found it difficult to identify meaningful 21st century references on the subject. What I needed was a summary of styles and effects which would enable me to develop my own direction and continue the broadening of my thinking. So I bought "Cut and Paste: 21st Century Collage" on a toss of the coin decision that it would be worthwhile, and am delighted with it for my purposes.

With selected image mini collections from 42 artists, there is great variety of style. Some have strong appeal to me. Some do not. It is the subjective range we are familiar with in the arts. For me, the newcomer to the art, it is a smorgasbord. In addition to the likes and not likes, I can see approaches I had never thought of, and without their inclusion in the book, I probably never would have. It is a very useful collection.

I bought the book to assist me in my photography studies. Did it help? Yes; and more than that, it has me wanting to do more collages for pure enjoyment. That is a rewarding outcome for any book on the subject.
