I thought I would blog about some of my favorite art books. Today’s book is one of the best I have found on the subject of collage. It is called Collage Journeys with a subtitle “A Practical Guide to Creating Personal Artwork.” The author is Jane Davies. I found it on Amazon…published by Watson-Gutptill…it came out in November 2008. Here are some of the topics she discusses in the book: gathering materials, painting with paper, working in layers, personal expression, and making a journal for collage. Jane Davies, the author, has a website and I have it listed on the sidebar under creative places to visit.
The last chapter of the book “Journals and Journeys” covers these areas: The Collage Sketch Journal, Journaling Projects, Topic-Specific Collage Journal, and Making a Book from Unbound Collaged Folios. In my opinion, this book is worth checking out if you are into collage and/or journaling. Anyone else read this book and what do you think about it?
