Chronicle Book love...Happy Haulidays (Win $500 worth of Books)

Let's have some fun...One of my all time favorite publishers (Chronicle Books) is having a contest for bloggers and blog readers to win an awesome assortment of books from their store.



I get to choose $500 worth of super cool books. You make a comment about these books.   Chronicle Books picks a lucky blog and a commenter to that blog. We both win our own set of the books below. Pretty cool, huh?

So without further ado, here is my dream list of Chronicle Books. ( I will admit I could have chose 100)

Loveliness from McSweeney's...more info
Awesome mix of artists and ideas, beautifully done...more info


I bet you can't help falling in love with this book more info
Wonderfully illustrated kids book on seeing the dark and light things in life...more info here

Get ready to view your competition...more info

or love and reality...more info

pretty ideas for to inspire your mind and your sketchpad...more info

I've got a tiny ass apartment...more info

Get out there and get it done...more info

Categorize this in "things every designer should know"...more info

I gotta eat and this looks very yummy, don't you think?...more info

Where all the love started, vintage illustration...more info
I hope you all like my list. I chose a group of books that are inspirational, helpful and just super cool. It is a good mix of art, design and fun that will push me forward as an artist, hopefully they will rock your world too. Let's cross our fingers and hope for the best. Oh, Chronicle books, have I told you how much I love thee?

And remember to leave a comment below to make this magic happen....
