Oh my. We never imagine when we launched this project and giveaway that we would receive such an amazing amazing response!! We were overwhelmed by your love and support for our dear illustrators and for our letterpress efforts to help launch their careers. We are so very grateful for all your encouragement and the time taken to comment, tweet and blog. Thankyou dear friends (and new friends alike). It is so very appreciated.
So, once the competition closed at midnight last night, we tackled the challenge as to how exactly to calculate the winner. Our approach was to print out all the comments ( 17 pages later) and go through and number each entry. Each comment about the Illustrators project received one entry, anyone who had tweeted received two entries, and anyone who had blogged received five entries. A few hours of maths later, we had a total of 536 entries! oh my.
So then to choose the winner. We know there are random online number generators, but here at Bespoke Letterpress, we like to do things our own lovely creative way. So we pulled out the teapot and had a teapot bingo party. As you do.
Three numbers were included for each number 0 - 9, we then had a drumroll and pulled out the first number 3, then 7 and then 0. We then consulted our 17 pages of numbered entries and finally found our winner....
Thanks for such an amazing offer. My favorite would have to be "Geraldine & Walter In Love although "The smell of the Sea" is a close second. I have also blogged about on our blog http://embelish.blogspot.com/2009/10/giveaway-of-all-giveaways.html Thanks, Bel x
