GIVEAWAY: Entire PUSH Gallery Series

October 05, 2012, 10:51 am  Posted by Lark
 

The work gathered in our exciting PUSH gallery series is some of the most interesting and innovative work done in contemporary craft today. With an exceptionally beautiful hardcover package and design, the series is a visual feast that will pique curiosity and spark inspiration for anyone interested in craft, intriguing personalities, and innovative ideas. The artists represented are considered mavericks in their fields, testing the limits in regards to both technique and subject matter while forging an even finer line between craft and art. Each book includes beautiful, full-color gallery images and short bios as well as Q&A style questions between the curator and each artist.

We’re celebrating the publication of the latest two books in the series PUSH Jewelry and PUSH Print by offering up a chance to win the entire four-book collection, which also includes PUSH Paper and PUSH Stitchery. Exciting!

How can you enter for a chance to win? Leave a comment on this blog post by 9 p.m. EST on Thursday, October 11. Any comment will do, but why don’t you tell us which of these four books you are most excited to see. One winner will be selected at random and announced on Friday, October 12. Click here for the official rules. Good luck! This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Clara, our winner!

    Push paper, what can be done with paper always amazes me.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Karen-Davis/1498811078 Karen Davis

    The Push Stitch and Push Print I’d keep for myself and give the Push Jewelry to a good friend. I might have to keep the Push Paper but I’d decide who to re-gift it to, should I be the winner!

  • Molli Koltun

    I think that this is an amazing series. I would especially be excited to see the PUSH
    Jewelry. As a jewelry designer, I am always drawn to the raw and things that “push the envelope”

  • Valerie

    I am looking forward to Push Jewelry and Push Paper.

    I have my eye on that Push Stitch.

    Push Print and Push Paper! These books look gorgeous.

    Paper! More books on paper is always good :)

    As a graphic designer, I would be super excited for the Print book…but then again, as a jewelry crafter, there’s the Jewelry one. Oh, and of course I love Paper. And Stitchery…. yes, I need them all!! :)

  • Carl

    Thanks for this wonderful offer to win this collection of beautiful books. Even though it’s not the most current release I think PUSH Paper is the one that appeals to me the most. It seems there is a real resurgence in paper arts these days, or maybe I’m just personally seeing more of it than I used to. Regardless, so much of that clever, precise, finely-crafted work just leaves me speechless.

  • gina sandoval

    excited to check all of them out!!

  • bn100

    This is a tough call! I love all four of these mediums but I think Print squeaks to the front by a hair.

    The Push Jewelery book would be most exciting for me to see!

    Jewelry is my first art/craft love, so I would so enjoy PUSH Jewelry. But having dabbled in other artistic media, the four book set would be wonderful inspiration. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  • Anonymous

    would like the PUSH book on jewelry

  • rebecca

    in my case it would be the stich one or paper….or print….then again jewelry is very nice to

  • sharlyn

    I started with needlecrafts and then added beadmaking/jewelry….I guess if I had to choose just one, I’d choose jewelry. They all sound like something I’d love to have and share!

  • Janet

    I would absolutely love the book on jewelry!

  • Denise

    What a hard question to answer. Started doing needlework. Have done some printing. Love paper art. Lately, doing mostly jewelry. Guess I have to go with jewelry.

  • lindaschiffer

    I am especially interested in seeing what is in Push: Stitchery.

    :) Linda

  • Brenda Shreves

    I would like to see what the PUSH series is all about…looks interesting.

  • Clara

    This was a tough choice, since I’ve looked through both PUSH Paper and PUSH Print and find them both luscious. I’m tossing the dice and saying PUSH Print, since I’m always intrigued by the varied processes used by the printers whose work is featured.

  • Kristin

    I would be most excited about PUSH Stitchery. :)

  • Elle

    I happened on PUSH Paper and immediately bought it because it is so fresh and interesting. But now I’m most excited to see the PUSH jewelry is about to be released! I love making and wearing jewelry. The possibilities of design and expression are endless.

  • trisha

    Definetly a tie between paper and jewelry

  • Joey Kleckner

    While I was in art school I studies alternative medias focusing on found objects installations. As of recently space constraints have directed me to focus on smaller objects such as jewelry. I find the the Push Jewelry book to be very interesting, especially the work of Julia Deville.

  • Diane Springer

    Being a multi-media artist, I am all over the board with artistic interests. My love of creating origami art would put PUSH Paper in the #1 slot, followed very closely by Stitchery, then Print, then Jewelry. What a fun way to introduce your newest books!

  • katrina rodabaugh

    Oh, gosh. I’m torn between Push Print and Push Stitchery as these are the two areas where I focus most of my creative work. These look like gorgeous publications and I’d be thrilled to win. I’m currently pouring over “Making an Impression” and I must say, it’s a gorgeous, gorgeous book.

  • Sheila

    Push Stitchery is the one I most want to look at, but they all seem amazing!

    Too difficult to choose–I guess I’d have to go with the Stitchery one, but they all look like a lot of fun to browse through

  • kcou

    YEOWZA! I have several books authored by Marthe Le Van, and they are all dynamite. This collection of books would not only influence the individual subjects of the books, but they would also influence each other with the possibilities that can be done in the other mediums!
