"Content in a life devoted to the pursuit of perfection and the compassionate understanding that it is unattainable."
So not only did I blow by 300, which is an awesome number, but I also caught this incredibly cool series of numbers, which pleases me deeply.
This blog is a pretty unstructured assortment of things I like and/or do, and the fact that so many of you seem to enjoy it warms the cockles of my heart.
Pursuant to that, I want to give you guys things.
These are five art books that I no longer love enough to devote shelf space to. (The exception being the Kinuko Craft book - that one was given to me by a dear friend who did not know I already owned a copy, and who told me I could pass it on.) They are:
Hardcover, brand new, still in the plastic (the open book is my own copy). Lovely lovely lovely reproductions.
Paperback with, uh, somewhat janky binding but otherwise good condition. The reproductions are pretty lovely, though, and if I hadn’t treated myself to a Complete Works I wouldn’t part with it.
Hardcover, good condition. It covers a whole range of artists falling in this book’s broad ‘optical illusion’ category. Awesome! Just not my thang.
Hardcover, good condition. It’s a book with less art than I wanted it to have, and while the writing looks interesting it’s not what I have art books for. The reproductions are lovely though.
Hardcover, all-but-new. Lovely lovely lovely - but I don’t need an entire book devoted to him (especially when shelf space is running low).
I will be giving all five books away.
THE RULES ARE AS FOLLOWS:
I will be picking five winners randomly and announcing them on my blog. The first person to contact me gets first choice of book, and so on down the list. (If you win but someone nabbed the only book you wanted, we shall discuss options. I will probably do you an art.)
So go forth, my lovely followers! I want to thank each and every one of you, but since I can’t I might as well throw heavy art books at you.
