You know those arts and crafts books that show you cool projects but leave you with absolutely no idea how to re-create the pictures? This is NOT one of those.

A must-have for collage artists, scrapbookers, and paper crafters. ...more

This is a cool book by Claudine Hellmuth. It's a great resource for aspiring and seasoned collage artists. There's many techniques she uses in her book. I am moat inspired by her resources page and her website:
http://www.collageartist.com/links.htm. According to her website, this is Hellmuth's second book and it sold over 25,000 copies.

Just like the first Collage Discovery Workshop book this one was just as amazing. It has great ideas, good techniques, good instructions, good photographs and is just in general offer clear, helpful, practical advice for collage artists. It is a book I go to again and again.

Edit:
Reread this again Jan. 2009

I liked her first Collage Discovery Workshop better. This one is a little repetitive, gives some techniques, but really is a focus for her projects.
