For years, artist Charles Wilkin has been known for his dynamic and often surreal collages, and it’s been 15 years since he released Index A, his first monograph, with Gestalten back in 2003. He works with precision, pairing artistic flourishes with classic styling, and Index A is cited as a groundbreaking example of the art form’s contemporary renaissance. For the anniversary of the book’s publication, Wilkin’s assembled a new box set including two new series, a commemorative poster, an original copy of Index A, and other exclusive treats. One of the series included in the box set is Monuments and Dust, of which Wilkin says, “We are what we perceive, and meaningful work always transcends the confines we place on it, becoming something greater than itself. This is just one of the many ideals I feel is evident not only in the works presented here but also enhanced by the willful lack of a chronological order and purposeful juxtaposition.”

The Index A box set will be made available on April 27 through Charles Wilkin’s website. In the mood for more collages? Check out The Age of Collage Vol. 2
