From the playful, funny and surreal merges of ridiculous things, to evocative and even uncomfortable clashes of people, moods and contexts, this book shows off the amazing flexibility and beauty of collage. Themes range from the explorations of beauty and the sexual to our relationship with our environment – and the way it's presented in the media. Others defy explanation.
