I bought this book having only just learned abut Artist Trading Cards, or ATCs, and wanted to know more. It does what it says on the tin, insofar as explaining what ATCs are, what you do with them, and how you make them.
I found the designs a little mediocre, and they all look like miniature hand-made greetings cards. There wasn't too much personality put into the ATCs, and I found it hard to be inspired by any of them; as a result my brief encounter in the land of ATCs has kind of stuttered to a halt. Maybe you'll enjoy it more than me, maybe not. I found it quite disappointing.
Lovely book with excellent photos and examples of various ATC's including clear materials lists and instructions on how to create them. Nice book for an absolute beginner in paper crafting of any sort. I enjoy it for the inpsiration I get from looking at some of the designs, more than anything else (as I don't plan on re-creating an ATC in replica to what someone else has created).
