    I adore the 500 series, all of them would translate well into the smaller format. I would particularly like to see 500 Beaded Objects done in the studio series. Of course, I’d really like my own work to be in a new addition! :-)

    They all look amazing, but being a jeweler I would have to say the pendents and earrings.

    how about unconventional baskets/vessels?

    Pendants! Love Pendants! Earrings is a close second.

    How about some woodcraft, eg. turning, carving?

  • Jehanni2

    Of these titles, Earrings is the one that rings my bell at the moment, though I have a fondness for handmade books that goes waaaaaaay back beyond college. I wrote and illustrated a book of poetry during an month-long cross-country trip, and played around with various Japanese bindings before settling on the style I liked best. Memories! I think my mother has the original.

  • Cynmaria

    The ice table is gorgeous!!!!

  • Juliapriest

    At the age of 66 I feel like I am finding out about so may wonderful opportunities through books!

  • http://tatterededge.blogspot.com Lelainia Lloyd

    I’d be interested in a book on the artful photography style that seems to be the current trend that is building momentum. If you’re not sure what I mean, I’m talking about photography that mixed media artists are currently exploring. I’ve been taking online classes for the whole year (I’m about to begin my 4th in December.) It’s an exciting medium and the classes I’ve been taking have informed my artistic life like nothing ever has before. I feel like I’ve learned so much about myself through the lense of my camera-so much so that I made an investment in myself-in May, I bought my first DSLR camera.

    If you’re interested in seeing some of the photographic work I’ve done this year, you can visit my blog: http://tatterededge.blogspot.com and use the search box at the top left to find my posts on the process by searching “Wading In”, “Light Hunters” and “Swan Dive”. I also have a Flickr account under tatterededge.

    Anyway, I think this subject matter would make an excellent book. (IMHO)

  • susan

    I looked a pretty good while, but could not find anywhere to see how to enter this contest…? :~(

  • Jaye

    First of all, Happy Thanksgiving. I am really appreciative of the giveaways and free books that you send out. I am really excited about the art title books. I love interesting mosaic and tile sculptures/floors, etc and would love to see what you come up with. I would also love to see the Handmade books. Thanks!

  • beadhostage

    I am most interested in the sculptures book.

  • Carmen

    I would like to see a book on enameling for jewelry

  • CoCoMiyoko

    Great Giveaway!  Any new book related to jewelry would be great.

  • Clayperson

    Polymer clay sculptures would be a good book.

  • Leslie Pearson

    hoot hoot! I’d love to win these books.  The Lark Book that has yet to be published….sculptural leather work.

  • MicheleFelice Bohlmann

    Great books.  I’d love to add them to my others from Lark Books.

  • Storybell

    I have so many of the books you publish. Perhaps the one area you could add to you offering would be in the knitting/yarn arts arena. There is so many new ways to express with yarn & fiber! Color, feel, and meaning from a ball of yarn.
