funky nature chunky book

funky nature atc chunky book

i had a fun time last month making atc sized book pages for a 'funky nature' themed chunky book. a chunky book or fat book as they are also known as are collaborative art books. a group of artists will sign up to make a certain number of pages in a theme chosen by the host. then they will send the pages to the host. the host assembles the pages together, binds the books and then sends the books to the artists.

the group that hosted this book was the main focus of the forum is trading atcs but there are also a section for altered art swaps.

what i loved about recieving this book was that there was a diverse range of styles and colors. it was well worth the wait! this was my first chunky book, i can't wait for the second.
