Back Cover Information

Artist trading cards, commonly called ATCs, are mini works of art. They are extremely popular among artists of all sorts—quilters, mixed-media and collage artists, doll makers—who trade and share them with others. Each is 2.5" x 3.5", the size of a playing card, and are often created as limited editions. The backside lists the artist's name and contact information

1,000 Artist Trading Cards is a brilliant and exciting compendium of these personal, miniature artworks, collected and compiled by Patricia Bolton, editor-in-chief of Cloth Paper Scissors and Quilting Arts Magazine. Many of the cards have been chosen from reader challenges sponsored by the magazines and several were created uniquely for this book, at the author's request, by an impressive array of talented artists and colleagues.

This book is both an inspiring visual source of creative techniques and ideas and also a unique snapshot of this exciting moment in time, when both new and experienced artists are experimenting, collaborating and sharing in ways that transcend traditional boundaries and pursuits.

Includes:

  • A how-to-section with step-by-step ideas for making your own artist trading cards
  • More than 1,000 full-color photographs of unique, beautiful artist trading cards selected by Patricia Bolton, editor-in-chief of Cloth Paper Scissors and Quilting Arts Magazine
  • A fantastic pageant of color, composition and creative use of materials
  • Information on enthusiastic online communities where you can share ATCs with people all around the world.

About the Author

Patricia Bolton was introduced to art quilting and the related needle arts in 1998 when she used some Christmas money to buy her first sewing machine. Ever since she made her first stitch (a fly) and embroidered her first motif (a spider), she has been entangled in this hobby and doesn't envision herself every breaking free. Embellished quilting and mixed-media arts have, quite literally, taken over her life—so much so that she left her doctoral program and full-time job as a special education teacher to found Quilting Arts Magazine.

Patricia Bolton is editor-in-chief of Quilting Arts Magazine, which she founded in 2000. In 2004, she and her husband launched a second publication, Cloth Paper Scissors. When she's not attending quilt shows or mixed-media exhibits, she can be found puttering in her studio or clicking away on her keyboard in Stow, Massachusetts.
