Cut, paste, create: while collage was conceived in the early 1900's, it seems to be the perfect form of expression for the 21st-century, with all its juxtapositions, eclecticism, and strange bedfellows. In our present age of collage, the simple act of mixing together different elements allows us to question our reality and make new worlds.


The Age of Collage showcases a new crop of artistic vanguards advancing the medium's possibilities, piece-by-piece. Equipped with a craft knife, paintbrush, stylus, scissors, or tablet, a collage artist's toolkit is as varied as their creations and this book brings their work back to the paper page.


From the poignant and provocative to the comic and curious, The Age of Collage features the creations of more than 60 artists, including Claire Pestaille.   Packed with visuals and a number of in-depth profiles revealing what drives the hands behind the pieces, this comprehensive volume is a celebration of the enduring power of collage.
