Collages are probably among the most simple examples of creative reuse of digital cultural heritage – yet the end results can be incredibly diverse. This set of collage illustrations was made for a publication by AvoinGLAM introducing and guiding Finnish cultural organisations towards openness. See the publication here (in Finnish).

As the original images were from different time periods, image quality and colours varied a lot. By changing everything into black and white and by adding some noise, the original images got a more solid look to bind them together.
