"A little history…"
"The original concept was developed by Swiss artist m. vanci stirnemann, who wanted to make a catalogue to document his activities with other artists. Because the cost of printing a catalogue in hockey-card format was prohibitive, he decided in 1996 to produce 1,200 cards by hand. This led to the first exhibition of Artist Trading Cards in April 1997. During the show, visitors were encouraged to produce their own cards to trade with stirnemann and others at the closing reception. From then on, a Trading Session has taken place at on the last Saturday of every month...."
