Artist trading cards, or ATCs, are popular mini works of art traded and shared by artists of all stripes as a means of advertising their talents to others. Roughly the size of a playing card, the backside of an ATC typically lists its artist's name and contact info. In this compendium, Cloth Paper Scissors and Quilting Arts Magazine editor Patricia Bolton compiles an impressive array of the tiny artworks, many of which are culled from reader challenges sponsored by the magazines. Others were created specially for this book. 1,000 Artist Trading Cards includes a how-to section on creating your own cards alongside 1,000 full-color photos of wildly varying works. It also provides information on online communities dedicated to sharing ATCs across the globe. 320-page hardcover.
