perhaps the worst book I bought in over 20 years! It's infant-entry level for this subject. At 20 pages (if that!) there's barely anything to it. Want a better book on the same subject? Much better is "artist trading card workshop; create, collect & swap" by Bernie Berlin. Compared to this 1 star effort, Bernie's book is at least 4 stars !

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit light on techniques but good at what it does. 10 Feb. 2012
By John L. Sparks - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'd rather pay a bit more and get more techniques such as in Artist Trading Card Workshop: Create, Collect, Swap by Bernie Berlin, BUT this book is worthwhile in that it covers a few things about how to cut paper without waste into the correct sizes and the techniques aren't for the most part covered in the other book or various others I've looked at, so I wish this volume were larger, but for the money, you are getting a good book. I'm still very glad to have bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars *Are YOU a CARD-ologist ? Ready to Trade Cards ?* 15 Feb. 2006
By mcHaiku - Published on
Format: Paperback
Editor Suzanne McNeill has a rather hefty title for this book showing samples of artists L. Vollrath, M. Charles and T. Holtz. A.T.C.s /OR/ Artist Trading Cards add up to great fun for many, NOT necessarily artists or crafty types. You will learn that it does help if you're adept with scissors & glue stix because you work with tiny images. The cards in Vollrath's book show plenty of creativity. Mostly, it is IMAGINATION that counts.

PART 2, after you have surrounded yourself with dozens of tiny cut-outs, is when you draw on your own artistry to work images into special pictures of a particular size: 2 1/2" x 3 1/2". Your skills will soon become honed. If working in a group 'rattles' you, worry not - that will subside & concentration soon become easier. The cards will not always be "limited editions".

PART 3 requires some diplomacy which isn't exactly covered in this book, but you'll catch on quickly. In collecting A.T.Cs you will want to maneuver toward acquiring the most colorful & diverse collection of cards possible. ( Be diplomatic! ) Having an adequate notebook in which to display your cards to potential 'traders' is desirable. (You could use a baseball trading card album for starters). You may also want to try ONLINE TRADING.

The authors compiled samples of their work with tips on the intricacies of the 'Art' and guidance about avoiding pitfalls. You are lucky if you're skilled at calligraphy, and/or have access to postage stamps (especially foreign), and old family photographs.

READ, SHARE IDEAS, TRY DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES ! You will soon be caught up in this craft and the discovery of new friends. Reviewer mcHAIKU thinks you will be grateful for the help of these artists /AND/ your own talent may surprise you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, as far as it goes 6 May 2014
By Hope Hilandera - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Maybe it's me, but I thought there would be a good discussion of types of paper, envelopes, mats, plastic protectors, storage ideas, and so on, for ACEOs and ATCs. Instead, it's about designing with stamps, collage, and other crafty stuff. Maybe the fault is mine, in that I expected something this little book wasn't meant to provide. In any case, it's probably perfect for people new to designing the collage-style cards.

5.0 out of 5 stars THIN BUT GREAT 17 Dec. 2012
By Lynda O. ADELSON - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book isn't very thick, but it is chock full of tips, techniques and ideas for creating artist trading cards. I have referred to this book many times and it was very helpful in how to cut your own ATC. I would recommend this to anyone interested in ATC's or ACEO's.
