Book Recommendation: Artist Trading Card Workshop

artist-trading-card-workshop-create-collect-swap_1

The Artist Trading Card Workshop: Create, Collect, Swap by Bernie Berlin (2007) is great because it gives the most methods of creation I have seen in one source and is written for a general audience who may not have had any prior experience with making art.  The whole book is fun and accessible with techniques being shown and taught through step by step instructions for 26 projects and 6 additonal genres of ATCs.  It is full-colour and crammed with images and examples, so you get a printed art gallery of ATCs as well as imdea for working with multi-media ATCs.  The book also has the most detailed history of the origin of artist trading cards and the early stages of its dissemination into an international art trend.  If you already love and make ATCs or are interested in getting started, this book is a great investment and an enjoyable read.
