Reviews

"Utilizing a myriad of styles and mediums, artists and writers draw us into a Dada world, the world we are living in, like nothing else I've seen does. . . . it will blow your mind." --Home Planet News


"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


"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
