A collage novel is a form of experimental literature. Images or text clippings are selected from other publications and collaged together following a theme or narrative (not necessarily linear).

The dadaist and surrealist Max Ernst (1891-1976) is generally credited as the inventor of the collage novel, although his work was preceded by the British 1911 work What a Life! by Edward Verrall Lucas and George Morrow .

Max Ernst published the collage novels Les Malheurs des immortels (1922, text by Paul Éluard), La Femme 100 Têtes (1929), Rêve d'une petite fille... (1930) and Une semaine de bonté (1933-1934).

Recent examples include the 1970 novel A Humument[1] by Tom Phillips and Graham Rawle's 2005 Woman's World.
