Artist Mary Green has played in gluebooks for years. In 2010, she presented 3 online collage courses, including the original Your Vintage Gluebook. She’s coordinated 3 Artist Class online courses, each presenting projects from 12 different artists. In 2011 Mary began a monthly email collage club, providing images and inspiration in twice-monthly emails.
Mary collects and deals in vintage ephemera, provides free images to her blog readers, and sells electronic copies of the most exclusive pieces in her collections for use by other artists. These include an antique French Holy Card collection, 19th century calendars, the antique card game Logomachy, vintage French maps, and more. See them all HERE.
Mary’s genuine papers, ephemera and vintage paper kits are available at selected shows and through Mary’s online stores. Although she refuses to sell her gluebook art, her book cover collages are sometimes available at exclusive Kansas City area stores.
