Title:Art in a Box - 30 Creative Projects in Mixed-Media Assemblage
In the multimillion-dollar crafter market, this is one art form that appeals to artists and makers of all kinds, whatever their other mediums may be. Also termed 3-D collage, shadow boxes, or assemblage, it's based on how you choose and arrange items in a "box" (term used loosely!) to create a visual message. With 30 intriguing projects of varied complexity, this complete guide teaches techniques for arranging, organising, mounting, and creating narratives. The boxes use easily available items like cigar boxes, unusual packaging containers, or mint tins.

Includes examples to teach arrangement, grouping, and assembly and offers extra inspiration with a 40-page gallery of a wide range of works by expert artists....
