Reviews

"A compilation of leading Dada-influenced artists from around the world." --TRIBE LA Magazine
"Excellent examples of collage and montage techniques . . . Interesting visual poems." --Portland Book Review
"Contemporary art and writing ranging from collages and acrylics to new digital art motifs and using computers to create art . . . As always it brings an interesting perspective." --Manhattan Book Review
"Though people expect Dada to be silly, and sometimes it is here, it is also often political and usually poignant. . . It's quite a smorgasbord for those who are sick and tired of it." --Seattle Book Review
