10 books about collage & paper craft

cutting edges: contemporary collage book
my favourite kind of book! books about collage especially don’t seem to be as popular as books about paper cutting, origami and the like. because collage seems to be more popular in the last few years i can imagine there will be a lot more books about collage in the future. i hope so, anyway!

if you have any to recommend that i’ve not included, please do.

robert motherwell: early collages

    Is that your cutting edges book? I've been looking for a copy but it's pricey. Lovely selection of lovely books:)

      yep! i bought it in…2011 i think so it was a bit cheaper, and i had a discount code too so i got it for about £20. it's a lot more pricey now isn't it! i hope you can find it cheaper somewhere. if i come across a discount code again i'll let you know :)
