On the second day of Christmas, Overlook Press gave to me...


Welcome to the second day of Overlook's Christmas giveaways! We'd like to start out by announcing yesterday's Charles Portis gift pack winner...

Congratulations, Gayle Lin!

You are now the proud owner of an impressive library of Charles Portis novels, including the bestselling True Grit, Norwood, Masters of the Atlantis, Gringos, and The Dog of the South. Thanks to all who entered; there are still eleven chances to win!

Up for grabs today, we have a very unique gift pack. Are you a designer? Do you aspire to be one? Or are you just an admirer of all things beautiful? Today's giveaway includes visually stunning books by two of the world's most celebrated designers, Milton Glaser and Eva Zeisel.
...

While most widely known for his iconic "I NY" logo, Milton Glaser is a legendary artist and designer with a rich and varied oeuvre. With a body of work ranging from newspapers and magazines to toys, textiles, interior design, and more, Glaser's sweeping influence spans generations.

Budapest-born Eva Zeisel emigrated to the U.S. in 1909 and led a trail-blazing career spanning more than seventy-five years. Her unconventional art, mostly ceramics and glass, has earned her many great honors and awards.
...


In anticipation of Glaser's upcoming book to publish in February 2012--In Search of the Miraculous or One Thing Leads to Another--we are excited to give away a signed copy of his dazzling book Art is Work. And that's not all! We're also throwing in a poster-sized print of Glaser's exclusive design for Overlook's 40th anniversary, commemorated this year.*

In celebration of Eva Zeisel's 105th birthday, we are thrilled to offer you On Design: The Magical Language of Things, a lavishly illustrated book that communicates the ideas that have guided and inspired her work throughout her career.
