ArtTrader Magazine is a free web based publication (PDF) that focuses on mail art such as artist trading cards (ATCs and ACEOs), journals, chunky pages, inchies and other altered art items. The publication features a wide variety of “how-to” articles as well as interviews with established and new artists from the traditional to the outsider styles. ArtTrader Magazine is published quarterly (January, April, July and October) in PDF format only though some articles and columns do appear on our website.
ArtTrader is geared toward artists of all levels who enjoy trading mail art and creating altered art and other items. Our articles focus on new to intermediate level artists though we are also a good source of info for more established or professional artists who want to have fun with mixed media and collage. Our magazine often contains artistic nudity and mature themes.
