Wednesday Giveaway: Florence Broadhurst

Wednesday Giveaway: Florence Broadhurst

Sep 5, 2007

Update (Friday, 2pm): Thank you to everyone who commented. The Giveaway is now closed. We'll announce the winner on Monday.

In honor of "Adornment" month at AT, for the next four weeks, we will be giving away goods that are in some way related to wall decor. We're kicking things off with a copy of Florence Broadhurst: Her Secret & Extraordinary Lives by Helen O'Neill — courtesy of Chronicle Books.

In exchange for having this volume bestowed upon you, we ask that you submit a review later. If you would like a copy of Florence Broadhurst, please comment below — describing the best use of wallpaper that you've ever seen (in person or just in a magazine).

Here's a description of the book from the Chronicle Books website:

"The story of Florence Broadhurst has recently been introduced to the United States. An eccentric woman known in her home country of Australia as much for the myriad of personae she created — starlet, couturier, painter, design icon — as for her brutal and still unsolved murder. To this day, mystery shrouds her; one thing, however, is certain: Broadhurst's place in the history of interior décor.

"Recognized worldwide for her groundbreaking wallpaper patterns, this enigmatic Australian left behind a trove of exquisite work, brilliantly displayed here in the first-ever authorized biography. Out of circulation for nearly 20 years, her wallpaper patterns and fabric prints are being restored by Signature Prints and are being sold throughout the United States to much fanfare."

We'll run this post for 48 hours, and then choose our favorite comment. The recipient will be announced Monday morning. (We'll follow up via email in order to send out the book as soon as possible.)
