This is another one of those books that is great to have around for inspiration and some really great information on how to assemble a collage to have the right elements. A book to have for reference.

This book has a lot of cool ideas for art projects using vintage photos and ephemera. It also has nicely detailed photos of step-by-step instructions for creating jewelry and shadow-boxes etc. On my "to-buy" list.
