The Art of Sketch Cards (art cards under cover)
I know this is a comic book forum, but many of you (well, maybe not many, but some of you) are also/have been involved with sketch cards and might be interested... :happy:

This ebook is the result of many months of work. Hopefully it will be interesting to the existing sketch card/trading card community AND help introduce new collectors into the fold.

The book contains 42 interviews with collectors, art directors, and artists - points of view from all three sides of the fence, from various corners of the world (though if there is a second volume, it would be interesting to find even more diversity), and from both male and female perspectives.

I'm thrilled to say that Steve Sansweet was immensely generous in writing a foreword for the book! Everyone who participated was generous with their time in answering the question for the book. There is LOTS of artwork, so the file size is a bit large (about 37 mb).

Links for the book are here, $8.99 and $9.99 respectively (amazon takes about 60%):

Thank you!

Shucks, thanks Panday. It won't be a bestseller fer shure but I'm proud to have actually finished it! All 200 pages of it. Am now planning a Kickstarter to publish a paper version, hopefully a hardcover. With lots of extras.
