Overview

Vintage Collage Journals is the sequel to artist Maryjo Koch’s Vintage Collage-Works, her first book illustrating her unique style of collage art with antique ephemera. In her new book, Koch has compiled an inspiring portfolio of her many themed journals combining collage techniques with watercolor painting and other artist’s techniques. She explores the collage medium in travel journals, recipe keepsake books, and nature and garden sketchbooks. As an avid collector of antique paper ephemera, Koch utilizes the things she collects in inventive ways to add personal touches to her journals, mingling them with photos, sketches, and paintings of the many themes she explores. Along the way, she also shows how the act of making a journal can be a valuable way to explore an experience or subject in greater depth.

From the Publisher

Koch, Maryjo. Vintage Collage Journals: Journaling with Antique Ephemera. c.128p. index. ISBN 978-1-59253-576-7. pap. $24.99. Quarry: Quayside. 2009. illus. CRAFTS

This book is for the creative journal writer on making one’s own journals using scrapbooking materials and techniques. Koch (Vintage Collage-Works: Artful Ideas with Antique Ephemera) combines paper ephemera with drawing and calligraphy to create handmade journals. Projects are similar to those in scrapbooking guides, but the emphasis on journaling may attract a new audience to the craft. -- Library Journal, February 15, 2010

Koch (Vintage Collage-Works: Artful Ideas with Antique Ephemera) combines paper ephemera with drawing and calligraphy to create handmade journals. Projects in both are similar to those in scrapbooking guides, but the emphasis on journaling may attract a new audience to the craft.
