Not only does this book include beautiful (and instructive) photographs of Claudine's collage work, but the reader is also treated to many versatile techniques, all presented in Claudine's engaging and thoughtful conversational style, along with very helpful discussions of design issues.
The first part of the book focuses on adding several techniques to your artist "toolbox". For example, Claudine offers explanation and instruction for several different types of image transfer techniques, from transfers using common tape or laminate to more unusual transfers using heat or even Elmer's clear caulk material. And forget about messy glues and decoupage mediums -- Claudine suggests an interesting way of using beeswax in assembling and even coloring your collage. Several other techniques i.e. peeling paint, will lend themselves to applications in many other media. There is also an interesting lesson in assembling a "frame" for your finished pieces that is both simple and effective. I found all of her instructions to be exceptionally clear and easy to follow.
Finally, I found Claudine's collage style to be refreshing. These days it seems that collage means seeing how many interesting or artsy things you can pile onto a canvas or paper. Yet Claudine's style is refereshingly spare, proving that it isn't quantity that counts, but quality. And there is plenty of quality in this wonderful and inspiring book!
Like other starving, self-taught artists, I can't afford to attend many workshops. Yet I'm desperatly wanting to know MORE, MORE, MORE about inventive techniques for creating GOOD art. So I am often left with "book learning" to fill in the gaps, and I have to tell you there are not many out there that really TEACH technique. Most of them are "do this, then do this" to produce a *certain* piece. (Which is fine, but I WANT MORE! LOL!)
In my eyes, Claudine Hellmuth is the modern master of collage, she has taken it to a whole new level, and I hoped her book would TEACH me. Her book has exceeded my wildest hopes. I flipped through it the minute I carefully RIPPED it out of the package and my little heart swelled with DREAMS and HOPE and GRATITUDE. This book is the BEST giver-of-tools to collage artists I have ever seen! Others have already enumerated the contents and the wonderful production value of this work, so I won't repeat them, but if you have a limited amount of money to spend on tools, spend it on THIS BOOK. You won't be sorry!
And now, I gotta go--- I have to go MAKE STUFFFFFF!!!!!!!! :o)
Rarely do you find an artist of Claudine's talent who is willing to generously share the knowledge of her particular craft and tell us her secrets. She has done exactly that. The book is written in excellent step-by-step concise and very understandable instruction with complete lists of what is needed in order to achieve the looks for the collages. All of the items needed are easily obtainable, not items that are impossible to find, most at our local craft and art supply stores. This is the very best workbook on collage I have had the priveledge to read. I can hardly wait to try every single technique.
