This is a great book for anyone beginning collage or for those looking for some new inspiration. The book includes 50 progects for 50 days; each project has a different basic focus, such as colour, strips, typography, so individually they can be very simple or you can incorporate aspects of previous projects into the new ones. If you have trouble getting started on something new set yourself the goal of accomplishing all 50. So far I have done 13, with some repetions such as Lesson 5 Colour Plunge - I ended up with 6, one for each primary and secondary colour. A really practical and fun workbook! ;
