It’s my 2-year blogiversary!
I can’t believe it – today is my 2-year blogiversary and I almost missed it! I’ve entered the terrible twos – yeehaw!
In honor of this milestone, I’ve decided to have a giveaway. The prize – a copy of the Hedi Kyle Festschrift 2009.
If you’ve never heard of Hedi Kyle before, well, she’s pretty much a book arts super genius. She’s created numerous bindings, including the Flag Book and the Blizzard Book. In addition to being a generous teacher, she co-founded the Paper and Book Intensive. I could go on and on about how great Hedi is, but I don’t have to because the Festschrift pretty much does it for me.
If you’ve never heard the word festschrift before, it’s a book written to honor an academic who rocks. Because Hedi is a super genius, she gets a super genius book written about her.
And let me tell you, the Festschrift is a pretty damn fabulous book. The book contains articles, photographs, tutorials, and drawings of Hedi’s work and work that she inspired. Contributors include Carol Barton, Julie Chen, Keith Smith, Gary Frost, Claire Van Vliet, among others. If there were a Dancing with the Book Arts Stars, the people who contributed to this book would be on the contestant roster.
So enough with the blabbering. Let’s get to business. To enter the contest, just reply to this post. For an extra entry, complete the following sentence: You know you’re a bookbinder when… If you’re not a bookbinder, then you can answer the following sentence instead: You know you’re not a bookbinder when…
The winner will be chosen at random, so don’t feel too much pressure to perform. I would, however, appreciate a good laugh. 🙂 Entries will be accepted until midnight on April 9th and the winner will be selected on April 10th.
