1,000 Artist Trading Cards : Innovative and Inspired Mixed Media ATCs Paperback
Artist trading cards, commonly called ATCs, are mini works of art.
They are extremely popular among artists of all sorts - quilters, mixed-media and collage artists, doll makers - who trade and share them with others.
Each is the size of a playing card, and are often created as limited editions.
The backside lists the artist's name and contact information. 1000 Artist Trading Cards is a brilliant and exciting compendium of these personal, miniature artworks, collected and compiled by the editor-in-chief of Cloth Paper Scissors and Quilting Arts Magazine.
Many of the cards have been chosen from reader challenges sponsored by the magazines, and several were created uniquely for this book, at the author's request, by an impressive array of talented artists and colleagues. This book is both an inspiring visual source of creative techniques and ideas and also a unique snapshot of this exciting moment in time, when both new and experienced artists are experimenting, collaborating, and sharing in ways that transcend traditional boundaries and pursuits.
