Book review and giveaway: Handmade Books


Thank you thank you thank you to the wonderful folks at Lark Publications!  First, for publishing this fabulous little book called Handmade Books, and second for sending me a copy to give away to one of you!  Inspiration abounds, and you won't believe just how much is packed into this tiny (only 5x5) volume.  Some of my favorite mixed media artists are represented here: Judith Hoffman, Gabrielle Fox, Susan Lenz, and Dayle Doroshow, and so many more who have become my new favorites! 

You need to know that the images here have been culled from the larger 500 series, 500 Handmade Books, so if you already own that one, this will be redundant.  However, if you don't own either, then it's your choice.  You also need to know that this is not a how-to book: it is filled with nothing but the gorgeous inspiring images that Lark is famous for.  Not a bad deal! 


***FREE STUFF ALERT***

If you would like to win a copy of this fabulously inspirational book, leave me a comment below and you'll automatically be entered to win.  If you tweet or post on Facebook or other social spots about the contest, you can leave a second comment and be entered twice!  Please make sure that the link you leave here leads to an active email address...if I can't reach you, you can't be the winner!  Deadline: February 16, 2011
