    "Great Library ATC Swap" Whether you are new to making ATCs or not, this book is a gold mine of information. Not only does the author describe the process of forming a group of ATC-makers, she takes you along on the journey. Each chapter describes what the group did, and illustrations are plentiful. Techniques are taught step-by-step. Even if you didn’t see the detailed photographs, the descriptions of each step in the projects are clear and easily followed. Although I am fairly new to making ATCs, I have been drawing and painting nearly all my life. This book made me think “Wow! This is something I can really immerse myself in!” Whether your interest is in making ATCs, or in enjoyment of others’ creations, or both, you will find many things in this book to love. In fact, I loved it so much I read it cover to cover when I first got it, and have referred back to it almost every day since. Thank you, Robinsunne. You are an inspiration.

    "Great find!" I just downloaded this book and just have to say what a great find! I am a Library Media Specialist for an elementary school and my mind is spinning with ideas as to how I can use this at school, in the community, and for my own ATC designs. This book is a must for anyone just getting started, as well as those looking for new ideas for their designs. It is also a great resource for anyone working with youth groups, community groups, and in assisted living facilities. The directions are clear with many photos of each technique. The examples range from the simple design to more complex designs using the technique. The monthly calendar is invaluable for anyone just getting started with a swap. It is actually a "lesson plan" which includes materials needed as well as, step-by-step instructions for a whole year. Want to start a community swap? Just getting started and want some basics? Have artist block and need some motivation for something new? This book... More > is for you!< Less
