All these collages are made from actual illustrations from old books using scissors and glue.

The books are those that nobody else wants. In fact mostly I rescue them just before they are sent to be pulped.

If you want to buy one of these collages please get in touch.

Or visit my Society6 shop society6.com/recombiner where some of the collages are available as prints. If you wish to suggest that a specific collage be uploaded to Society6 so that it is available as a print please do so.

I need to delete many indifferent collages from this site so if there are any you.think should be deleted please leave a comment and probably I'll do so!

Go to rhmay.wordpress.com/2011/08/18/making-mischief/#more-243 if you'd like to read my thoughts about collaging.
And there's another blog there called "Books? That's what I think of books!" which recounts my adventures in sourcing material.
