Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Collage artists are always looking for ideas going beyond the usual flat paper or mixed-media assemblage. Both of these books emphasize three-dimensional projects in addition to flat items. Browning (Paper Mosaics in an Afternoon) has practical step-by-step projects incorporating jewelry, place mats, and paperweights. Maurer-Mathison (Paper in Three Dimensions) presents projects by many artists that sometimes take a more surreal approach, often transforming found objects into dolls or altered art. She also offers tips for using unusual papers and construction materials. Both books are good sources of ideas and would be useful in collections needing more papercraft material.
