The gallery books in the Masters series always are on my list of “Editor’s Picks.” The books in the series each feature approximately 40 artists, selected in conjunction with an expert curator. Photos of each artist’s work are showcased on four consecutive spreads–eight pages–with an introduction from the curator and thought-provoking quotes from the artists interspersed throughout.
To celebrate this beautiful ongoing series, I’m pleased to offer a special giveaway of a bundle of four Lark Jewelry & Beading Masters series books. The books are Masters: Gold, curated by Marthe Le Van; Masters: Beadweaving, curated by Carol Wilcox Wells; Masters: Gemstones, curated by Alan Revere; and Masters: Glass Beads, curated by Larry Scott. To be entered for a chance to win this outstanding, inspiring collection, leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m EST on Tuesday, August 10. One winner will be selected at random and announced on Friday, August 13. Click here for the official rules.
Any comment will do, but if you’d like please let us know what other subjects you want to see fleshed out with a master survey in this series. I’m pleased to report that Masters: Polymer Clay is an upcoming (Spring 2011) publication, and a non-Jewelry & Beading title, Masters: Blown Glass, is due out in just a few weeks. Among the other titles already available in this gorgeous series: Masters: Earthenware, Masters: Porcelain, Masters: Woodturning, Masters: Collage, and Masters: Art Quilts, Volume 1.
