I have attended a class by Claudine Hellmuth about two years ago and this book is written in the same style as her workshops. She is clear, honest and practical as an artist and teacher. The rustic, natural, true style is evident throughout this book.

I have been doing collage for more than 20 years and have at least a dozen books on the subject, yet I still learned several new and exciting techniques from this superbly written how-to book.

One of the best mixed media / callage books I know. Inspiring with lots of techniques.

If you like distressed, antique-looking assemblages, I agree with the first reviewer. Personally I'm really tired of looking at collages that are all brown or faded or covered with peeling paint, so I found it less useful. However, it does explain all sorts of techniques, including a bunch of very interesting transfer techniques (which you need a photocopy or laser-print image to use). I'm sure the information will come in handy one day.
