Cutting Edges

Today's Friday art book is Cutting Edges: Contemporary Collage by Robert Klanten, Hendrik Hellige, and James Gallagher. The wonderful thing about about this kind of survey that gathers together work in a particular medium--especially when it's a relatively unheralded medium like collage--is that you get to discover a whole new slew of artists who you were, up to now, entirely unaware of. Not to mention, in a case like this, where the curatorial eye of the project is so utterly smart and cool, stylish and unified, the overall experience of browsing through the book becomes one long festival of oohs and ahs.
