book giveaway

About six months ago, we published an interview with Dan Andreasen–the illustrator who does the Oliver + S paper dolls.

This week at the studio we came across a brand new copy of Dan’s recent book, The Giant of Seville, and thought that we would give it away to one of our blog readers.

The Giant of Seville
