Black Baroque Book Art Giveaway!




This is one of my all time favorite posts!

Wanna know why?

Well, there is the fact that I get to host a giveaway where 1 lucky reader will get an awesome prize but also I get to gush about one of the best Etsy shops there is! I adore Black Baroque's book art selection! I can't believe I never thought of something like this. Alexandra, the creativity behind the shop, takes vintage/antique books that wouldn't otherwise be used and loved anymore and she creates these amazing 8x10 prints. She's not just talented, she's an incredibly sweet person who puts a lot of time and care into customer service.





Alexandra was kind enough to also offer me a free print and I'm having the hardest time deciding on a favorite. They are all beautiful and whimsical. Old book pages turned to works of art. How neat!  The method of how these are produced is a mystery. Only her and her adorable side-kick, Puppy Poni, know the process.









We do know though that Black Baroque is a rapidly growing trend. Her work has made the front page of Etsy and she will be featured in the September issue of Coastal Living Magazine. You can read a wonderful interview here about her experiences as an artist, film agent, designer, and shop owner. She is a truly fascinating person!



And right HERE on this blog you can win YOUR choice of any Black Baroque print! 


Here's how to enter: 


This giveaway is closed. 
Thanks to all who entered! 
The winning number was entry #20!
Congrats Chantal!



Good luck, lovelies! 


This giveaway is open world wide and will end on August 5th at 9pm EST when I chose a winner via random.org.

I would choose either the Octopus Lovers Tentacle Love, or the Galleon Ship. Both would look great in the Navy inspired room that the hubby and I are collecting for!
