An excellent survey of contemporary female collage artists from around the world. The short summaries of each artist are illuminating and give a glimpse into the various techniques and ambitions of all 50 women. My favorite new discoveries from this tome include: Riikka Fransila, Flore Kunst, and Olivia Descampe. The collection also includes longtime faves Anna Bu Kliewer, Rozenn Le Gall, and Sarah Eisenlohr. Recommended By Kevin S., Powells.com
