Over the last week or so, we had a blast giving away two fantastic books and a chance to join stylist Sibella Court for a walking tour of NYC. Over 1,000 comments later, we have our winners, and I’m so excited to send you all your books or see you in person this week for the walking tour. Thank you so much to everyone who entered, and thank you to Christine & Evan, Matt and Anthropologie & Sibella Court for letting us share these fun contests on D*S.

I’ve emailed all these winners directly this morning, but if you see your comment here and don’t see an email from me, please shoot me a line at “designsponge at gmail dot com”. Thanks! xo, grace

I am an art teacher in an inner-city middle school in Dallas and would love to have this book to teach my students and after school art program. It will make printing seem doable for these kids that have never had art before! The possibilities are endless!!!
