I adore Lynda Barry and keep taking this book by her out of the library so what the heck...perhaps I'll be lucky ...hope hope.

and Leslie's correct...it was the imageof that beautifully tied stack of books and the title that drew me over.

I love the image all tied up.

I am interested. Perhaps cover to cover or any of the above. I just love technique books.

I just found your blog, and it wonderful. If I win your giveaway Collage Unleased sounds like a winner. Thanks for the opportunity.

Kathy said...

I'm also new to your blog - I think i got here via Diana Trout. Blog travel can be a little dizzying. I am happily learning about all the treasures you have here. I would love the printmaking for paper and fabric book. I work mostly in fabric, but paper is a crooning siren always seducing me.

Hope I'm not too late to enter ~ Cover to Cover, by Shereen LaPlantz would be my choice & this was a difficult choice.....

Useful Books said...

I am currently working through the Diana Trout book and sharing my creations on my blog. It's FABULOUS! Also have Cover to Cover, also excellent. I would love to learning more about printmaking so that one would be wonderful! Found you from Woven Letters site, btw. THANKS!

Sunny -- aka Matriarch said...

Hi, I really would like to be in this drawing, and the book I most want is Cover to Cover. If not that, then the Lynda Barry book because she is wonderful and maybe I was her in a past life. Thank you for sharing your books with some of us.

Wow, what an amazing giveaway offering. I love your blog. Just found you through Stephanie's blog, "Dragonfly Studio".
I would love to win, "Cover to Cover": Creative Techniques for Making Beautiful Books, Journals & Albums by Shereen LaPlantz
I was just at Barnes and Nobles last night salivating over all of the wonderful books in the crafts section. It's always like being a kid in a candy store and only being able to choose one piece.

Thanks for the opportunity to win a treasure!
Stop by my blog sometime to say, "hello".

Julie said...

Gail P said...

okay, you've enticed me with this great idea that I will do in June for my 5th year of blogging. Dorit Elisha's book would be a nice addition for inspiration. (The image of stacked books tied together is truly a winner.)

audrey said...

Printmaking + Mixed Media would be my first choice, but any one would be great to win.
