I’m not sure if other people are aware of this, but I have only recently discovered books such as (link is to Amazon):
Extraordinary Things to cut out and collage - Maria Rivans
Vintage Botanical Illustration - by Kale James
Cut and Collage Kale James
Cut and Collage 2 Kale James (he actually has a whole lot more books in this collage/mixed media series)
I’ve bought the first two, and the first one has arrived today…I am in love! The book pages are actually larger than A4. I want to use the pictures as references for my drawing, but I also want to use them for mixed media collage as well!
The good thing about the James Kale books is they come with a digital copy of all images for reference, I wish the Extraordinary Things book had that as well, because the pictures are just too awesome!
Here are 3 random pages I flipped to… (excuse the bad nighttime photos)
