  43. aclearcutsign says:

    Great giveaway, and what a great selection! I like Decorate and Take Away.

  44. Madelene says:

    I think books are the perfect presents too… They say so much about the giver and the receiver! Would really love to check out the Stylists one, though ALL of them would make great coffee table / kitchen shelf books!

  45. mariana says:

    Fashion + Food + Photography + Surfing = Things I love as a growing artist. I mean, all of these books are really great, so it’s hard to choose a favorite. Uh…is all of the above an option? Hah-hah. ♥

  46. Jordan says:

    Tartine is my favorite!!

    -Jordan

  47. I’ve been itching to try baking bread for the first time [eep!] so I’d probably dig right in to the Tartine Baked Set if I won this giveaway. Thanks for hosting this!

  48. Nelly says:

    I am so inspired by this set of books! Take Away reminds me of my trip to Asia and Europe and Decorate and Pantone would really help me with my home. These books would make great conversation topics while I have company! Thanks!

  49. Shelly says:

    I love Holly Becker and have been wanting to read her book after taking her blog class. I have never heard of ‘The New Photography’ book but am obsessed with expanding my photo skills and cannot wait to check it out!

  50. I’m so torn between the Decorate and Tartine books! I would probably have to go with the Tartine box set because I absolutely love their cafe:)

  51. Tiffany says:

    What a great selection of books. I love the Tartine box set, such a sucker for bread.

  52. Anna E says:

    As an aspiring designer, the Pantone book is right up my alley!

  53. yvonne says:

    i moved from sf to dc two years ago and am missing tartine. would love that boxed set soo much. i promise to take beautiful pictures of all the baked goods i make if i get it. <3 twitter // @yyyvonnedc
    instagram // yyyvonne

  54. merlin513 says:

    I’ve had Holly Becker’s ‘Decorate’ on my wishlist since it was released, and Pantone colors are something I use everyday…so the whole stack would make me INCREDIBLY happy!

  55. Linda says:

    I gave my daughter-in-law Decorate last Christmas and have been wanting a copy of my own ever since! What a joy it would be to win all of these lovely books … some would certainly end up as additional holiday gifts but deciding which ones to go will be a challenge!

  56. kim says:

    Ooooh pick me pretty please! I love books and could use a lot of those in my collection. I’m a designer so that pantone colour book is right up my alley, an aspiring surfer(well, currently I just swallow lots of seawater…) and an avid home cook – so that Tartine boxed set would be amazing for inspiration and yummy recipes, and also some great styling for my soon-to-launch-blog. Thanks!!

  57. Bess says:

    I love The History of Surfing!!! What an amazing giveaway. Books are my fav to give & receive :)

  58. Aisling says:

  59. Jen says:

    I saw the Tartine set on the weekend and fell in LOVE.
    Definitely on my wishlist.

  60. Oh, wow! Chronicle is one of my favorite publishers right now. I’ve been coveting “Decorate” for quite some time! Maybe this Christmas it will come off my wish list.

  61. Nuria says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! My favourite is “The new photography manual”. I love photography! :)

  62. Tarleton says:

    Great giveaway!! I love, love Decorate and my little sister needs a copy of her own so I would be happy to share:)

  63. Katherine says:

    What a wonderful selection! I would have to go with The History of Surfing as my top book. I love love love the culture of surfing and sometimes in the dead of winter, I’ll put on The Endless Summer on a loop to keep me going. I can imagine this book would bring a similar result. Love!

  64. David says:

    Victoria!

    Without a doubt, the Tartine books. Much better to spend time in one’s kitchen than waiting in line at Tartine. :)

    Best,
    David @vsgoliath

  65. Jessica B says:

    OOooooh, the Tartine books need to come home to me…a home that would forevermore smell of freshly baked bread.

  66. ashley says:

    anytime i’m in the mission, i always have to go to tartine so that book is def. my favorite of the bunch!

  67. Karissa says:

    I’d not heard of most of these books before, but am so excited to have discovered “Take Away.” Growing up as a California girl in China & Thailand, I have a huge love of street foods, especially of the Asian variety.

  68. carrie says:

    I would love to have all of the books! Especially the pantone: 35 inspirational color palettes

  69. lynzey says:

    I don’t usually enter giveaways, but this one is just too good to pass up! Decorate and The Photograph Manual are on my list.

  70. Chase says:

    Love The New Photography Manual, love books.

  71. rachael says:

    i love giving books as presents because they are the kind of gifts that i am most excited to receive! i’ve wanted decorate for a while now, but the tartine box set is gorgeous as well!

  72. sierra says:

    What a wonderful treat! I usually give books for gifts, such a great long lasting present! My fave from the stack is the history of surfing. I live in HAwaii with my girlfriend, who was born and raised here and has surfing in her blood! She would love it! Thanks Victoria for the opportunity!

  73. Kelly B says:

    I love the Decorate book! <3

  74. Kimberlyblok says:

    Photography+Surfing=Perfection “The History of Surfing” has my vote.

  75. Chelsea C. says:

  76. One word: Pantone. Need…

  77. Emily K. says:

    My favorite book is “The Country Cooking of Greece”; but I would love to win all of these!

  78. Magali says:

    Thank you for the chance to win this. It’s an amazing selection, but if I had to pick one favorite it would be the New Photography Manual, because I love photography & you can never stop learning.

  79. I LOVE Holly Becker’s voice on her Decor8 blog, so it would be great to own her first book and be inspired for redecorating my flat over the holidays. The Christmas + New Year period is also the one time of year when I settle down with a stack of new books from my wish list to chill before the business of January.

  80. Nicole says:

    All of these books look amazing, but Tartine is my favorite bakery, and me and my sister are obsessed with holiday baking and giving baked goods as gifts, so it would make such a fun addition to our arsenal of recipes!

  81. Susan says:

    I want that book Tartine! And The History of Surfing!

  82. melissa s. says:

    Amazing! Pick me!! I love the Tartine book and would be so psyched for the box set!

  109. Kim W says:

    This entire selection of books is pretty darn amazing, but the one that gets me the most nerdy/giddy is the Pantone one. I’m pretty much nuts about anything Pantone. :) Thanks for running this contest!

  117. anto says:

    Books truly are the perfect gift! We should send my friends that memo ;)
    My absolute favorite from that stack is “The Stylists”, the cover itself is already inspiring me to create some illustrations. I can only imagine how inspiring it must be on the inside.
    I’m also eyeing “the new photography manual” because I have no books about photography, yet it’s a recent favorite hobby of mine.
    Fantastic giveaway!

  118. Rach says:

    @Lisa Falagan Rubio (Facebook)
    @phalagen (Twitter)

  125. Kari says:

    Ooh my fav would be Pantone book but the hubs and I would probably read over and over again the history of surfing, since we live in Hawaii. It would also be a very entertaining beach read! :0

  126. Marci says:

    My daughter would love the History of Surfing!

  127. Hey! This is a terrific giveaway! I have actually never read any of these books but am most excited to *fingers crossed* win the pantone and photography manual. Both would be a great help for my small business. My twitter is @cadematos or @herliterarysalon. Here’s hoping I win – what a great early christmas gift that would be.

  128. Laura Parke says:

    Hersandhers on Twitter

  138. Tori says:

    Hmmm….hard choice! It’s a tie between the Tartine box set and Pantone. What a totally boss giveaway!

  139. Jennifer says:

    Tartine Bread is itself like a good loaf of bread: my favorite ingredients wrapped up into a neat, pretty package. Not only do I love bread (baking it, eating it, reading about it), I love gorgeous food photography, and I love the story of Tartine. Especially during the holidays, I’m reminded that bread is an essential part of humankind’s culture – for nourishment, for community, and for heritage. Bread is at once the everyday-est food and the most noble, and Tartine knows this and shares it beautifully in this book. Tartine Bread is a tome for bakers, photography lovers, and bread eaters (that’s most of us) everywhere. I’ve got this one on my to-give list. Thanks!

  140. I would *love* to win the stack of books – looking forward to Stylists: New Fashion Visionaries by Katie Baron. The concept of styling and stylists is pretty fascinating :D

    Also sharing this giveaway on my blog! http://2brokelagirls.blogspot.com

    email: sidewalkscenes @ gmail .com

  141. Danielle says:

    I’m a huge fan of Chronicle Books.
    From this stack, my two picks are Decorate, for my husband, who’s a set designer. And Take Away, because I grew up in Hong Kong and the photos look fascinating.

  142. Katie says:

    decorate!!

  143. Brooke R. says:

    Tartine! Man, I would love to have those books.

  144. Courtney says:

    Amazing giveaway! All of the books look so good…especially the Tartine boxed set!

  145. Jessica says:

    Wow!! So many great books it’s hard to choose! Would love the Decorate book, but I bet the Tartine one is super fabulous as well.

  146. Kristina M says:

    “decorate” looks like an amazing and inspiring book! what a fabulous giveaway :)

  147. christine says:

    i would say the new photography manual :)

  148. What a great giveaway! I got to eat at Tartine for the very first time while I was visiting SF in October & loved it, so that set peaks my interest a bit. I’m also really trying to push myself to learn a bit more about photography, so The New Photography Manual would be a big help!

  149. Seema says:

    Really hard to choose between Tartine and The James Beard Foundation’s best of the best. I guess the latter!
    @seemaloni

  150. Liza Schiltz says:

    Holy guacamole, they all look fabulous!!! I think that Decorate might be a favorite but how could I pick just one? Happy Holidays xo Liza

  156. Mary says:

    I’m excited about Holly’s new book Decorate!

  157. Amanda Marie says:

    Oh gosh. I lost hundreds of books in a fire last year and haven’t had the heart (or time) to start rebuilding a library. What a gorgeous place to begin…!!

    @bestlawreview

  158. Vinare says:

    The tartine boxed set!

  160. Sharon says:

    I’m drooling over the Tartine box set!

  161. Without a doubt — Decorate is my favorite. Since I already have my own copy, I would love to pass along that amazing book to a friend for the holidays. For myself, I have been wanting to dive into Tartine for so long! The thought of a box set has me over the moon!

  169. DC says:

    Sitting among my stacks of books (wait, that makes me sounds like a hoarder!) I think I’d love to win these Chronicle books. If I had to pick a favorite I guess it would be the Tartine boxed set.

    however, i would love to bake my way through the Tartine boxed set :)

  191. Greta says:

    Such gems!! This selection would MAKE my color-coordinated bookshelf look even more stellar!! If I must pick one, and one only: I’m going with The James Beard Foundation’s Best of the Best. The name says it all. Social media whore: @gretabodenstab

  192. Coline says:

    I’m a huge fan of Chronicle Books. I would love to have all of these. I’m so curious to discover the Tartine boxset and the Pantone’s book. What a nice getaway!

  193. Yelle says:

    Lovely giveaway! I adore books! I especially have had my eye in that Tartine book! Would be perfect for my collection of coffee table books.

  194. Ana says:

    Ah… Decorate because I’m moving into a new place and desperately need great ideas and Pantone book for my graphic design. But all would be divine!

  195. LH says:

    Definitely Tartine!

  196. chanen says:

    nothing like james beard foundation best of…nothing better than looking at gorgeous food and learning about who made it!

  197. christina says:

    i’m going to stick with a classic. the pantone book. color is a simple and beautiful source of inspiration.

  198. Amelia says:

    Ohhh i could never get enough Decorating books, so Decorate is my fave. thank you. :)

  199. Breanna says:

    Love Decorate! It’s such a great book! What a wonderful giveaway :)

  200. Jasmine says:

    I’d love to get my hands on that itty bitty Pantone book!

  201. sydney85 says:

    I love the Tartine cook books. Great ideas for cooking for all those holiday parties.

  202. Samy says:

    I love the tartine books! i am going book crazy, trying to put together an amazing collection of books on my display cabinet to ogle at all day. my number one love!

  203. JULIANA says:

    Hard to choose, but my favourite is the Tartine book set. Decorate is a close second, though.

  204. Malory says:

    Decorate looks fantastic.

  205. Megan says:

    I would love the book pantone® : 35 inspirational color palettes – fingers crossed!

  206. Mandi says:

    very torn between decorate and pantone. the good news is if I win I won’t have to choose ;)

  207. I would love the STYLISTS book, in fact I’m bookmarking the page on Chronicle Books right now so I can come back to it and add it to my holiday wish list :)

  208. Great titles! Love the pantone book.

    afabulouschallenge@gmail.com

  212. Liz says:

    So hard to choose just one. The History of Surfing looks great
    As does the photography book but who can resist
    Some new cookbooks!

  213. Angharad says:

    Oh gosh, the Tartine book for sure! And I completely agree: I just did a bunch of Christmas shopping today — all books! They are absolutely the ideal gift.

  214. Melissa says:

    Are you kidding me with this decision? This is a grrreat selection. Yes, I LOVE to bake, so the Tartine box set is incredible. I’m obsessed with interior design and can flip through books like Decorate for years and find new ideas to inspire. But, I’m nothing short of a freak show for paint chips, so I’m going to have to go with Pantone. I’ve even cobbled together poetry from paint names found on samples. The Home Depot people see me coming and know I’m going to wipe them out of their samples. Fingers crossed!

  215. Chelsea says:

    The History of Surfing for sure! I grew up on the ocean and have been landlocked for the last 15 years. Somedays I just throw on a surfing video just to get my ocean fix!

    Chelsea (ChelseaH305@Gmail.com)

  216. sheila says:

    tartine + (history of) surfing… both wonderful to enjoy in reality and from a couch/coffee table :)

  224. melissa says:

    The Country Cooking of Greece ~ because seriously, they know their food!

  225. Kay says:

    Nice picks! The little Pantone book is so cute, but the James Beard book is calling my name loud and clear.

  226. Tammy Winn says:

    Who wouldn’t love to read about Pantone all day long?! But I have to admit this Tartine set has me highly intruguied. Yay for reading! On twitter @TheRedDoorPress

  227. Hi Victoria! What a lovely giveaway! The Tartine Boxed Set looks incredible – nothing better than new cookbooks to get you inspired for making dinners in the new year.

  248. Ally says:

    Definitely a toss-up between the Tartine Boxed Set and the New Photography Manual. Good thing I’ll get both if I win!

    Twitter @AllyEller

  249. Melissa says:

    Though I could lose days getting lost in any of these books, the history of surfing looks to be the most intriguing. Growing up in CA, I’ve never been on a surfboard but I’m fascinated and mystified by the sport.

  250. Emeline says:

    Really hard to choose one book… But I say Tartine because first I love to cook, second it will be beautiful on my bookshelves with my others cookbooks and third because it will be my first American cookbook! Thank you for this great giveway :-)

  251. margot says:

    :) I have been dreaming of the Tartine book for months! It makes me feel as though I am back home in San Francisco…

    I want the Tartine box set so bad! The Pantone book is also super exciting, as are all the others!

  309. Gotta go with surfing since I’m far from he ocean, but dream of it every day. History of Surfing.

  310. Venetrise says:

    I would so love to win the Tartine box set!

  311. Robin Whiting says:

    Wonderful giveaway! Books make the best gifts. I like Tartine Bread.

  312. Dee Dee says:

    Okay, first, this blog is simply beautiful – just had to get that out of the way!

    I’m a native San Diegan who only learned to swim 7 years ago at the age of 33. It’s my dream to now learn how to surf so that history of surfing book is calling out to me!

  313. angie s. says:

    the history of surfing is at the top of my list! tartine and the pantone book look awesome too. :)

  314. ememby says:

    The Tartine set looks great!

  315. Libby says:

    That Tartine set has been on my wish list for awhile – baking bread looks like magic!

  316. ariana says:

    Wow I would LOVE to win these amazing books!! The Decorate book would be great since I’m currently decorating my new home but I really like them all! :-) thanks for this great giveaway! I’ve been addicted to your blog since I discovered it a few months ago! Love everything in it:-)

  317. sara C. says:

    My favorie is “decorate”.

  318. Amanda J. says:

    I’m most excited about the james beard foundation’s best of the best! Thanks! If I win, you can contact me at this email!

  319. Jena says:

    My favorite is the James Beard one. I have Tartine, though, and also love that one!

  320. Laufa says:

    the country cooking of greece – MMMM sounds good, can’t wait to try the recipes!

  321. Mona says:

    I am most excited by “THE NEW PHOTOGRAPHY MANUAL” although, those picks are so amazing – you have such great taste!

    I’d love to take my own blog to the next level – by shooting my own photos. The manual would really help me out! I aspire to have a blog as lovely as yours someday!

    Best!

  322. Marisa says:

    I’d really like that Pantone book, but any of them would be inspiring and fun to display & look at. Hope I win – email me if I do!

  323. Jennifer says:

    Ooo…so many good titles to choose from! But The Tartine Boxed Set and The Photography Manual are the two I am most looking forward to!

  324. Carolyn says:

    oooh I’d love to get my hands on Decorate! and history of surfing for the girl inside me that dreams of being a surfer in another life!

  325. Mignonne Bakker says:

    I would say the pantone book. Who doesn’t like colors. books makes me happy

  326. A.K. says:

    Tartine looks good.

  327. Libbynan says:

    Stylists – The New Fashion Visionaries would be my pick. It used to be that no one knew about the stylists. We thought celebrities picked their own clothes and fashion editors picked the clothes for photo shoots and put it all together. Now the stylists are becoming known as the artists they are. I love Lori Goldstein! The Glamourai did a feature on Lori’s apt. a year or so ago and it was divine…. not necessarily my style but fascinating. I’ve been buying some of her clothes from QVC and I always get positive comments about them. I really should get a commission for all the customers I’ve sent their way for Lori’s t-shirts.

  328. alexandra says:

    lovely collection! I think I would be most excited over the the Tartine boxed set.

  329. Lindy says:

    Oh that Tartine boxed set looks wonderful but I am also very intrigued by the Pantone book…..

  330. The stylists would be my top choice but they all look amazing!

  331. Meg says:

    I am always looking for new design ideas for my city apt, so Decorate looks really interesting to me.

  332. Madeleine says:

    I would LOVE Tartine: The boxed set!

  333. Lark says:

    I have been dying to get my hands on Decorate!

  334. Nicole says:

    Love this giveaway! I’m super excited about the Tartine set, but all of them would be amazing additions to anyone’s collection!
    @nhodsdon

  335. Elizabeth says:

  344. Angela says:

    Love the Tartine Box Set!

  345. Lauren says:

    I’ve been drooling over the Tartine set for some time!

  346. James Beard Best of the Best :-)

  347. MelissaW says:

    The book I’d probably drool over most would be Decorate, but the one I’d use most would probably be the Photography Manual, since I just bought a camera I don’t know how to use!

  348. Colleen says:

    the tartine set looks amazing

  349. Jennifer says:

    Love these. I must have them!

  350. Nicole says:

    My choice would have to be Tartine set. Nov. 19th is just in time for Thanksgiving, so it’d be the perfect compliment to over indulging on a delicious holiday meal.

    “Honey, you enjoy the football game, I’ll just sit here with my new books…”

  351. Tania says:

    tartine boxed set for me!

  364. Silvia Lopes says:

    I LOVE Greek food, so the Country Cooking of Greece would definitely be my pick for this giveaway!

  365. Megan says:

    Color informs and inspires pretty much everything I do, so I would have to say the Pantone: 35 Inspirational Color Palettes books.

  366. Jenny B says:

    I would select The New Photography Manual as my favorite.

  367. Ooh, great choices! The History of Surfing and the Tartine box set are my favorites. :) Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    Awesome collection of books! I’m super interested in reading the james beard foundation’s best of the best!

  452. Alexandria says:

    This is such a wonderful giveaway! My favorite book in this selection would have to be the Pantone book. As tough of a decision as it is, I am a design student particularly interested in color theory, so the Pantone palettes tie together so many of the reasons the rest of the books are so appealing to me!

  453. Bethany says:

    Ooh how to pick only one! If I must, I suppose it’s Decorate that’s calling my name :)

  454. Tawna says:

    Oh, they all need to come home with me! I would have to say Tartine is the top contender. I miss San Francisco…

  455. Liya says:

    I like the set that’s got the tartine books :)

  456. jamie says:

    Those books all sound amazballs! The tartine set is especially drool-worthy.
    It totally sucks that you’re limiting the giveaway to North America, though. I’m a military spouse that just moved to Guam because of our commitment to my husbands 17 (so far) years of service to this country, which is part of the US and USPS ships here for normal domestic rates, but sooooo many people/shops treat us like we don’t exist because we’re not ‘contiguous’.

  457. sophie says:

  503. S. Harris says:

    The Tartine Bread is my favorite!

  504. ALEX says:

    Lovely collection Vicky. I’d have a hard time parting with any of them as gifts but I’d have to say I adore the Tartine Box Set. And, of course, as a designer no one else in my life could make better use of Pantone book! So those two will DEFINITELY stay on my home shelves.

  505. Susan Y says:

  525. Kris Moore says:

    It’s about home – where some of my ancestors lived in Greece, where I recently savored bread pudding with seasonal fruit (cranberry and apple) at Tartine, where I’d like to move from one place to another via surfboard. It’s where my heart can be found.

  526. Carolyn says:

    Love the Tartine, but have to say my hero, James Beard would be my favorite from this wonderful selection!

  527. Kate says:

    BOOKS!! God I love them ALL!
    But I have to say that I love how you threw “History of Surfing” into the food/decor mix! Endless Summer is one of my favorite movies, so I would be super excited to crack that one open!

    Twitter: @NyssaMarissa

  539. Erica R says:

    All the books look lovely, but either Tartine or Country Cooking of Greece would probably be my top two from this selection. Thanks so much!

    -Erica

  540. Austin says:

  541. Catheryne says:

    Lovely idea! Great books. Hope I win!:)

  542. Haley says:

  557. Erica says:

    Ooh definitely the Tartine set!

  558. Alexis says:

    Ohhh how I love books! But too pick just one favorite is impossible. If I won this set I would go straight for both the History of Surfing or the country cooking of Greece options. So fun!
    @vivaTVR

  559. Laura says:

    Um…yes, I would love to win these! I would go with the history of surfing, since it looks like I will be a far better surf scholar than surfer at this point…

  560. Kate says:

    They all sound so good! Tartine and Decorate may be the faves!!!

  561. MaddMel says:

    History of Surfing! Hands down. Great giveaway from a great place! Thanks!

    MaddMel at Rocketmail dot-COM!

  562. Carol says:

    Thank you for doing this giveaway! I like History of Surfing!

  563. Katy P. says:

    Lovely choices!

  564. KP says:

    My vote goes to Tartine. I live two blocks away from the bakery, and my guilty pleasure is stopping by at 5pm to pick up a country loaf. The book isn’t a cookbook per se (there are only a handful of recipes), but a masterful take on the perfect loaf.

  565. Jamie P says:

    Wow, I have been coveting that Tartine cookbook for months now! And I couldn’t agree more with your synopsis of one’s love affair with books. I wouldn’t trade my tiny, proud collection for the world!

  566. Hello Victoria! As an Interior Design student, I´d been taught that color should follow the function of a place. Beyond what they say in school, I believe that color can make a big turn in every environment and can make a person´s mood change immediately. For this reason, the PANTONE inspirational color palettes book is my favorite and I would love to have it and give it a great use. Thank you!

  567. Sara says:

    Decorate has been on my wishlist for a while now!

  568. mlleparadis says:

    count me in! cuz i have a birthday this week and my mr. needs yet ANOTHER book about baking. thx!

  569. Mary Frances says:

    OOO I’m excited about so many of these. Pantone, Tartine, Decorate? Who can choose…

  571. ebonyh says:

    Wow, that is one long list of commenters; it’s great to see so many book lovers! I worked at Tartine bakery when they first opened their San Francisco location and I was still in college. Now I’m back in school getting an MFA in Creative Writing, and am sadly not in SF (for now). Whenever I’m back in town for a visit I like to stop by Tartine for a croissant that is, as one (French) customer once put it, “the best in the world.” I’m sure I’ll never quite capture the Tartine magic at home, but I’d sure like to try!

  572. Grace H. says:

    Tartine: The Boxed Set is probably my favorite/the one I most want!

  573. sunny says:

    What a great giveaway! I love Chronicle Books anyway!

    My favorite in the stack is the Tartine Boxed Set one.

    What a great giveaway-I would love this. The History of Surfing would be just the ticket to get me through a long NE winter! I love the ocean and could never live far from it. The other books are awesome too. Thanks for the chance to have these on my bookshelves.

    You have chosen so many great books that it is hart to pick a favorite, but I think I’ll have to go with the Tartine box set.

    Decorate is a book I’ve perused while standing up at Anthropologie but would love to have it for my own to ponder on my couch. Thanks for such a generous offering.

  590. Davi says:

    What a lovely giveaway! My favorite book from this collection is The History of Surfing by Matt Warshaw. I am in love with all things surfing, the research and would love to see all of the great pics!

  591. Katie says:

    Definitely ‘Decorate.’ Love the blog and with a brand new apartment, the book would be super handy.

  595. Candice says:

  601. KittyPride says:

    I am looking forward to reading the Decorate book, I need ideas for decorating! Thank you for the great mix of books giveaway :D

  602. Julie says:

    As a Greek girl who loves to cook Greek food, I’d choose “The Country Cooking of Greece”. I love Diane’s work, and would be interested in creating the traditional dishes I grew up on with her touch.

  603. Julia A. says:

    yay books! love books, and Chronicle books are always so beautiful.
    From that amazing stack I’d have to single out the Tartine boxed set. I love everything about Tartine but with two little ones it’s rare that I have an afternoon to myself or even better, with my hubby, to go there. But I can always make time to make bread at home! Side note they’re also just a few blocks from my favorite yarn shop.
    The Decorate book is a close second.

  604. Holly says:

    Oh, I’ve always wanted to try some recipes from the Tartine cookbooks, but it’s the small Pantone book that gets me the most excited! I’m a total design nerd.

  605. natalea says:

    Wow! what a giveaway! someone (hopefully me!) is going to be getting one heck of a wonderful box in the mail! I would have to say that Tartine set would thrill me, but all the rest look wonderful as well. The Stylists looks intriguing…. Thanks for the chance!

  606. Aude says:

    Hi guys, i like the new photography manual, and i like your giveway, even though i can’t receive anything because i live in France- i follow your beautiful blog reminding me of a city i definitely love.

  607. Celeste says:

    I’m really excited about The New Photography manual– I’ve never been able to take an official photography course. I love the variety of the books you’ve chosen; they’re like a treasure chest.

  608. Lena says:

    My favorite is the Tartine set. I’ve always wanted to visit in person, but the books would be a nice salve in the meantime.

  609. Free books from Chronicle? Yes, please! Thanks for the amazing giveaway.
