Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life.

Charley Harper is my favorite illustrator of all time, a bold statement I know. The book Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life, curated by Todd Oldham, has been around for a few years. It’s an over-sized, boxed edition and a little too pricey for my pockets. So you can imagine the magnitude of my joy when I spotted the recently released hardcover version for only $50 while browsing books yesterday. And wow, was it ever worth the wait! I perused to my hearts content over every page and more than once let out an Oh, wow. So happy to finally have this one as part of my collection.

Win It: Becca Heuer.

What better way to kick off the new year than with a calendar giveaway?! Exactly, there really isn’t one. At least here in Blogland. The instant I saw Becca Heuer’s seasonal letterpress calendar I smiled. Big. I love her concept of splitting it into seasons instead of months and the letterpress is breathtaking. And just to say Hi, hello, I hope you have a lovely year, Becca is gifting one of you luckies with a brand spankin’ new calendar to start your year off right!

Just leave a comment with your email address. (Don’t worry, I won’t be selling or storing them. It’s only to let you know if you win!) You have until 12pm CST tomorrow, January 5th. The winner will be chosen randomly and notified shortly after. Thanks, Becca!
