By the Book: Stories and Pictures
by Diane Schoemperlen
Kingston, Ontario-based collage artist and author Diane Schoemperlen published By the Book: Stories and Pictures in 2014. This colourful, 224-page book features 73 of Schoemperlen’s hand-cut-and-pasted collages, made with images from the public domain, that illustrate seven stories, which pull from old texts such as The Cyclopedia of Classified Dates With An Exhaustive Index (1900) or The Commonly Occurring Wild Plants of Canada (1897).
Christopher Byrne reviewed the book in Kolaj #12.
