Cut and Paste: 400 Years of Collage

Author(s): Patrick Elliott; Yuval Etgar; Freya Gowrley


Collage is one of the defining subjects in Modern Art. It is as important and popular today as it has ever been. This definitive survey of collage and 3-D sculpture (made from bits and pieces stuck and nailed together) spans the whole period from about 1600 to the present day. Each page of this book is filled with fascination. The lavish illustrations include images of items such as books with fold-out flaps, Victorian collage, Valentine and greeting cards, double exposure photographs, album covers such as Sgt Peppers, the Hungry Caterpillar, many curiosities and items from Cubism, Dada, Surrealism, Pop, 70s counterculture, video and computerised collage.
