Book Arts Improv: Grand prize winner
Welcome to the grand prize drawing of the Book Arts Improv!
Just in case you’ve forgotten what the prize is, it’s a set of books that includes one each of the four books created during the Improv:
I’m just going to get right to it. The nonexistent envelope, please:
Congrats Eli! Again!
Eli won week #2, so he already has one of the books in the collection. As I mentioned in this post, if the grand prize winner has already won one of the books earlier in the month, then I’ll send the remaining three books in the set. Another drawing will then be held for the remaining book.
What that means is that I get to have another drawing for a copy of Honorable Melvin.
And the Melvin goes to:
Congrats Stephanie B! Again!
Stephanie won week #4, so now she has two books. It looks like Eli and Stephanie might want to play the lottery this week.
Four weeks ago, I set out to do the following (from this post):
Starting next week, I will enter into a four-week stretch of improvisational bookmaking. Depending on the content and complexity of the book, an edition of three or more will be created each week.
The Improv was an experiment that I feel was a great personal success. I surprised myself with both my creativity and stamina. I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the Improv – it wouldn’t have been possible without your suggestions.
And thanks so much for the laughs – seriously, your submissions were hilarious (especially last week’s).
If you’d like to see the books up close and personal, I’ll be entering them in the Book Arts Guild of Vermont‘s upcoming show, Big Ideas, Small Books, an exhibit of artist books at the Emile A. Gruppe Gallery. Submission restricts entries to three per person, but I’m going to try to get them to take all four. I’ll provide more details as the event draws closer.
