Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Collage had a long, vital history as a folk art before it emerged as a fine art in the twentieth century. In Europe, Asia, and the Americas, all kinds of everyday materials were transformed into mementos and decorations: pictures made of matchsticks, straw, butterfly wings, or feathers; portrait silhouettes cut carefully from paper and framed; fancy paper Valentines garnished with bits of lace and cutout papers; and pressed flower arrangements... Collage continues to appeal to professional artists, and amateurs as well, because it presents a personal, spontaneous way of working with materials that are easy to obtain...As you will see, the creative possibilities of working with collage are infinate.
