Okay, seeing as lots of people are wondering about ATC's I will tell you everything here:
ARTIST TRADING CARDS are miniature works of art created on 2 X 3 inch or 64 X 89 mm card stock.
they are originals, small editions and, most importantly, self-produced.
anybody can produce them.

the idea is that you trade them with other people who produce cards, either at TRADING SESSIONS or wherever you meet another ATC trader in person.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU MEET OTHER PEOPLE IN PERSON TO TRADE - i.e. it is OK to trade by mail or to participate in editions but THE MAIN PURPOSE OF THIS PERFORMANCE IS THE TRADING SESSION AND THE PERSONAL MEETING.

It's not about money: PARTICIPANTS IN TRADING SESSIONS AND EDITIONS SHOULD NOT BE CHARGED ANY MONEY: the point of the project is the exchange of cards as well as personal experience.

there are monthly TRADING SESSIONS at different places (zurich, calgary etc. see EVENTS) and you can start your own Trading Session wherever you live. there have been other TRADING SESSIONS at irregular intervals in other cities.

the project was initiated in 1997 by zurich artist m.vni stirnemann. since then several hundred people from all over the world have traded ATCs during TRADING SESSIONS, through Mail or by participating in COPY-LEFT EDITIONS http://www.artist-trading-cards.ch/copyLeft.htm and SISTER TRADING CARDS (STC) EDITIONS. http://www.artist-trading-cards.ch/stc.htm

Hi Darkest_Faerie --

It's glad you liked my ATC!

Since my images have a CC license that allows posting them  for non commercial purposes, i don't mind that you have them in the photo bucket. Sometimes my server goes down! The album with that series of ATC is at http://www.grey-cat.net/elainephotos/JEB-ATC2003.02.shtml.  Unfortunately, when i moved my blog recently, i broke some links. My notes about the images are now at http://www.grey-cat.com/ATC/?p=33

Cheers,

judith
