GIVEAWAY:  A Collection a Day - Advanced copy
By now, you've probably heard of Lisa Congdon's A Collection a Day project - it's made quite the blog and magazine rounds. If not, read this post and you'll know all about it by the end.

With the end of 2009 approaching, Lisa quested to find a new and challenging creative project for the upcoming year. As an ardent collector, she came up with A Collection a Day. For 365 days (from january 1st, 2010 to december 31st, 2010), she photographed and blogged one of her collections or drew/painted an imagined collection. This project got a huge amount of reception, both online and in print, which eventually landed her a book deal with Uppercase. And that's exactly what we're giving away today: Lisa Congdon's A Collection a Day book. What makes this giveaway even more special? The book doesn't come out until the end of March, so this giveaway is for an advanced copy.

3 WAYS TO ENTER:
  • Leave a comment on this post.
  • Get an extra entry if you tweet about the giveaway or mention it on your blog. Be sure to leave a 2nd comment saying you tweeted and/or featured it on your blog. (note: if you featured this giveaway on your blog AND tweeted, you get ONE comment for the tweet and ONE comment for the blog feature, making it a total of TWO extra ways to win.)

  • **Open to all readers, international included**

    And for all of you San Francisco peeps (and people visiting), Lisa has a book signing on the 18th of March at The Curiosity Shoppe in SF:
    855 Valencia Street
    San Francisco, CA 94110
    6-9 PM on March 18th
    booklaunchcard

    I'll be there too if you want to stop by and say hi, tell me a joke, what have you. Hope you can make it! And don't forget to enter the giveaway :)

    I will draw a winner Thursday, March 17th via random.org.

    GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED - A WINNER HAS BEEN DRAWN. THANKS FOR ENTERING!
