Books Abound conference trading cards


I and six of my peers are hosting a regional, annual conference for librarians and teachers on the joys of liesure reading, called 'Books Abound', October, 2007. We anticipate 125 attendees. As an icebreaker we thought trading cards would be fun. Collect a set and win a chance at a prize!

But trading cards are a little harder than first thought. A set of 12 to 16 cards might be nice, on a literary theme, character, etc., but no such animal, to my limited research exists for easy creation/acquisition.

I had a quick look on the net and came up with this for you:
If you do a search there for 'authors' it should show you what they have.
Yes, Sarah invited me to be her friend here but we have not actually ever met.

I am considering the flickr option as a back-up.
Would you know the source for the literary themed cards you mention.
I see wee Sarah Kelly John's as a mutual friend.

2 thoughts: You can purchase decks of literary themed playing cards or use flickr's trading card maker: to produce your own.
