At the end of September I entered Chronicle Books’ Craft Book Giveaway contest, and won! It was really exciting and I got to choose $100 worth of books (in addition to $100 worth of e-books). After carefully browsing Chronicle’s online “craft” section I decided upon the three shown above. I’m obsessed with book arts, so The Book as Art was an obvious choice. Instead of going with a DIY fashion book (which would’ve been my go-to in the past) I chose Mastering Calligraphy and Mastering the Art of Embroidery, which are my new inspirations to learn those crafts. Once winter break rolls around I can’t wait to embroider and create beautiful hand-lettering.
