Artist's Mailing Cards are a new and growing trend in the world of mixed media art, and this book contains an exclusive selection of some of the best designs, with contributions from a number of well-known textile designers, including the author, Christa Rolf, herself.
The lovingly created miniatures are postcard-sized pieces of art, richly decorated with a range of designs including landscapes, florals, geometric and abstract, achieved using special yarns, fabrics and embellishments.
With the help of a detailed section on materials, clear explanations of the basic techniques, and the individual designers' tips, you will find these postcards quick and easy to make, while at the same time developing creative ideas of your own.
Then you can start swapping, collecting, giving and of course sending your unique cards!

Review by SallyAma
A nice book with good ideas. My biggest complaint, as I have with a couple other mixed media books i have, is they were written in Europe and many materials are impossible to purchase in the US, and only with great expense from Europe. However, some techniques will compel the obsessed mixed media artist into spending the money to purchase materials abroad (as I did).
