a contributor to Mosaic Atlas, you might be interested in this project which Lynn Moor (MosaicSmalti.com) and I are working on. We are publishing an E-book on CD that will be an international collective portfolio of contemporary mosaic art from 2005. Unlike the Atlas - which is limited to public mosaic art - this publication can include your personal works as well. We hope you participate.
