Digital printouts of fashion imagery from various places online, laser-cut and pinned to a foam panel.
Oklahoma-based artist Kelly Campbell Berry layers illustrations with snippets of text from the story to create a visual representation of the book.
"I am truly amazed at the ability some people have to arrange words in such a way that we, the readers, can actually ‘see’ into the imagined world of the writer.

My book sculptures are my way of showing what the words on the pages create in the imagination of the readers."
Mark Wagner makes these stunning collages out of $1 bills. Be sure and check out his mega-collage called Liberty.
From the Artist Statement:
The one dollar bill is the most ubiquitous piece of paper in America. Collage asks the question: what might be done to make it something else? It is a ripe material: intaglio printed on sturdy linen stock, covered in decorative filigree, and steeped in symbolism and concept. Blade and glue transform it-reproducing the effects of tapestries, paints, engravings, mosaics, and computers—striving for something bizarre, beautiful, or unbelievable... the foreign in the familiar.
Gideon van der Stelt collaged film fragments, superimposing them onto a paper model of the Dutch city of Utrect (where I was lucky enough to spend about half a year) in a video titled Verknipte tijden (Distorted Times).
There is something about these Composites by Patrick Winfield, (made up of individual instant photographs) that feel a lot like memory, shifting slightly with your gaze, fitting all together, the same and different. Lovely.
