this is my favorite book of the year. rex ray is an incredible artist. he puts together combinations with paper that blow the mind. i am an art teacher who sees tons of books, and this one was a definite standout. i brought it to work for my co-art teachers and students to see, and they were all awed and amazed. this book would be great for anyone visual--artists, graphic designers, interior designers, etc. what an inspiration. i am collecting paper and scissors and glue to attempt what rex ray does...but i will never even come close!

This is an excellent survey of this artist's career to date, with a post-pop-art sensibility that has a wide appeal to many age groups. This volume has very fine color reproduction showing the cut-paper pieces with great clarity. A fun book even for the casual art appreciator, lots of very creative visual stimulation.

This is one of the best design books I have ever gotten. I used this artist to teach 8th graders. We made the painted papers and created collages. They enjoyed this very much!

Spellbinding? That's pretty highfalutin lingo for an art book. True, but it's spot on. There is SO much going on in Rex Ray's art that you'll find yourself pouring over it transfixed trying to figure out how he did it. You ask yourself how it's possible that he did all of that in collage. Really really really good stuff.

Very refreshing to see a designers exploration of art and come up with such beautiful and rich images. The book itself is designed well and just love to have it in my book collection!
