ATC (no! not ACT, not TAC, its ATC)
Topic: Web resources

So much talk about Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) even though they've been around for years!

These are mini-works of art, usually made individually, that always have the same measurements and are always traded - never sold. There are whole groups of traders out there in cyberspace and many sites that will get you started. The one I find most comprehensive is http://www.cedarseed.com/air/atc.html

I've noted a few books out on the topic, as well, such as:

Artist Trading Card Workshop: Create, Collect, Swap by Bernie Berlin

1,000 Artist Trading Cards: Innovative and Inspired Mixed Media ATCs by Patricia Bolton

Artist Trading Cards by Leonie Pujol

Some people have carried this concept over to Moo cards, inchies, and twinchies. It's all fun!
