New Matte Stephens Book Giveaway!


So today - I'm super excited to introduce one of my favorite illustrators, Matte Stephens' new book, Matte Stephens, Oeuvres choisies | Selected Works! As his publisher says, "It's a tribute to an artist who's increasingly popular on the contemporary art scene. It is naive, funny, touching, absurd, it's Matte Stephens!"  A beautiful collection for his fans and those that collect art (and would make an excellent Christmas present)!  Matte's book is published by Editions Alto out of Quebec and is in French and English It is a cloth bound hard cover with silk screening on the cover and has a dust jacket. It is 96 pages .  (See more info about the book here) which is also available through Matte's etsy shop here and at Poppytalk Handmade here!

And we're pleased to be hosting a giveaway for a signed copy of the book here on the blog!  Just leave a comment at this post with your name and contact (anonymous not eligible) and we will pick a winner Friday morning.  Good luck!
