Win this amazing font suite!

Laura Worthing font giveaway via Besotted Blog

We’ve teamed up with Laura Worthington today for a  giveaway of her new font Adorn Smooth! If you are not familiar with Laura’s work you will be floored at what is included in her font families. In the Adorn Smooth Collection she really took care of everything you would need font wise to create the perfect invite: A beautiful script font (but of course), a slab serif–a great alternative to those who had sticker shock at the Archer font I mentioned the other day. A simple serif, a deco inspired sans serif (shown above), an elegant engraved, ornaments, banners, flourishes, oh my!  The set even comes with a 71 page resource on how to use everything, sample images to inspire your own creations and easy to reference specimen charts. Laura does not play around, these are seriously pro fonts.

As with Adorn, Adorn Smooth provides a disparate but harmonious typographic toolkit for creating wedding invitations, event posters, book jackets, or packaging.

To enter to win, (I hope this is easy, you know how my not so easy giveaway went last time–insert Debbie Downer music here). I was recently asked what my favorite book was and I was flummoxed, I love so many, it’s so hard to pick just one, right? So I of course gave her 3 favorite books (but that list could have easily been 300!) To enter to win just answer the same question:

What is your favorite book? Or books?

You don’t have to let us know why you chose the book(s), but if you want to share we’d love to know. We’ll choose the winner randomly next Wednesday, May 20, 2015. Good luck!

  1. I love the book Heidi by Johanna Spyri. Especially the bit where the grandfather cooks her goats cheese before tucking her into her straw bed under the stars. Magical…

  2. How exciting! I’m crossing my fingers as he timing couldn’t be more perfect – I’m planning a wedding as we speak!

    My favorite book is “By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept” by Paulo Coelho. It tells the story of a young woman who grew up as a strict Catholic and with the help of a mentor, discovers a feminine side of God. This book inspired me to study new religions in college (as a Bio major – to appease my parents) and has definitely played a role in my own self-discovery. This book has paralleled my own story numerous times!

    This is my first time participating in a giveaway. I can’t wait to see the results and best of luck to everyone!

  3. The Princess Bride, written in 1973, is still my favorite book. The movie happens to be my favorite movie, as well. They are different and, of course, similar at the same time. T hey are both an action packed, hilarious, love story. What more could you want in a book? or movie?

  4. The Night Circus, The Long Ships (NY Review Books Classics), Watership Down, The Lord God Bird – these are just a few that I have read multiple times and truly loved.

  5. Sooo many favorites! I have to list more than one: the Outlander series (long before the TV show), The Night Circus, The Time Traveler’s Wife, My Name is Memory, and Crazy Sexy Diet for non-fiction. :)

  6. this question brings me back to high school … ‘the outsiders’ by s e hinton … i have read it 17 times through many years … long before the movie … which i have never watched as i do not want it conflicting how i see it in my mind … a story about justice, injustice, loyalty and integrity …

  7. It’s so hard to choose just one favorite- maybe it’s whatever I’m currently reading! I just finished Ready Player One and immediately reopened to the beginning to read again. It was delightful! Ender’s Game is definitely a contender, as is the (totally different but completely life changing, for me) sequel, Speaker for the Dead.

  8. Hands down my favorite book is Night Circus. I originally read it on my Kindle, but I loved it so much that I purchased a physical copy to loan out. It’s hard to describe the plot other than purely magic.

  9. My favorite book as a child was Marguerite Henry’s “Misty of Chincoteague”. As an adult, my favorite book is a tie between Jane Eyre and Persuasion.

  10. Lovely font!

    (Does it count if it’s a cookbook?) At the moment, my favourite book is “Community, Recipes from Arthur Street Kitchen by Hetty McKinnon”. As a previously confirmed salad hater, this book has totally transformed the way I think about salads, every recipe I’ve tried so far has been completely stunning. Doesn’t hurt that it is beautifully designed with fantastic photography either. ;)

  11. A retired printer gave me lots of type specimen books as he was moving to New Zealand. I know how lucky am I, these have to be my favourite books! There’s some interesting gems to be found as well as beautiful fonts. I loved the one I found in Haddon & Co 1913 that goes on to say how popular it was becoming to get the effect of imitation typewriter printing and a brief how to using letterpress and a piece of silk! Amazing this was over 100 years ago, the world hasn’t changed so much then…
    I took a pic and posted it on flickr if you’d like to see
    As a typography nerd I would love this font ;)

  12. I think there are different kinds of favorites. Books that made a huge impression on me are Madame Bovary, The Virgin in the Garden, Still Life with Woodpecker, and The Prince of Tides. Then there are comfort reads I can go back to again and again–Dorothy Sayers’ Peter and Harriet mysteries (especially Have His Carcase and Gaudy Night), LM Montgomery’s Anne books and The Blue Castle, A Wrinkle in Time, anything by Sarah Addison Allen.

  13. I lovd the hundred year old man who climbed out of a window and disappeared! In fact, I have two extra copies sitting on my shelf just waiting to be given to appreciative friends!!

  14. Like some many, it’s really hard to pick one book, so I’ll give my top three. One book that I never tire of reading is the children’s book, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. A wonderful story of unconditional love, it makes me cry every time I read it. For the adult flavor, my favorite book is Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much is True, a beautifully written multifaceted story of redemption, forgiveness and much more. I also have to note the Harry Potter series as it exemplifies the fine craft of writing.

  15. Jane Austen — “Pride and Prejudice,” “Emma,” “Sense and Sensibility.” Jane strikes the perfect balance between Neo-Classical restraint and Romantic extravagance, and all with a wicked sense of humor. Her advice is still excellent, her observations on human nature still accurate, her writing still sparkles.

  16. One of my special books is L’Élégance du hérisson from Muriel Barbery. Simply a poetry and an amazing philosophy of life from the eyes of a little girl.

  17. I have so many!!! Right in front if me is Brain on Fire by Susanna Cahlan. Fascinating read. I usually have some Steven Pressfield near my desk for a little motivation when I get stuck on a project.

  18. Choosing one is difficult for me, too. My passion for books is likely different from most others’. I love any book that teaches me, therefore my library consists mostly of references (or lessons) rather than novels. Favorite examples that come to mind are: Ruby the Copycat, Peggy Rathmann, a children’s book with charming illustrations and a lesson about individuality and being yourself; Scruples, Judith Krantz, I’m sure an unconventional choice, but the first part of this novel was an inspiration for me many years ago; and also the countless books I have that have taught and motivated me in knitting, sewing, cooking, photography, sketching, digital applications, and designing. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity!

  19. Too many to choose from really but I’ve always loved Matilda by Roald Dahl – a simple tale with humour and lovely scratchy illustrations.

  20. One of the books that I tend to reach for over and over again is “Mr. Darcy’s Diary” by Amanda Grange. It’s basically Pride & Prejudice from his perspective!

  21. I have a million favorites!! But I think top of my list are The Time Traveler’s Wife (favorite love story), Pillars of the Earth (historical fiction) and Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man (favorite childhood book). Great question!?

  22. While I have read and loved “Pride and Prejudice” to many times to remember, my new favorite book is “Constellation of Vital Phenomena” by Anthony Marra. Placed in war torn Chechnya, it is the kind of brilliant book that stays with you the rest of your life.

  23. my favorite book is “gone with the wind”! I saw the movie and loved it so i decided to read the book and fell in love with the story even more!

  24. Art of Attention’ by über yogi Elena Brower and deisgner Erica Jago, this book is pure magic…

    It is perhaps the single most beautifully designed and illustrated book I have ever seen, and even better, it is full of wisdoms. It is a very versatile yoga book in the sense that not only does it challenge you to stretch your body, but more importantly, to stretch your mind. And this it what yoga is all about for me – mind&body. Finding peace and finding yourself! This book was such an inspiration to me, that it made me open up to my creative side. Even though I am a very visual person, I had never thought of myself as a creative person, but clearly I had all of this creativity bubbling up inside me and when I saw this book I knew I had to go out there and get creative! So I ended up publishing my own yoga book together with a friend :) My friend wrote the text and I was responsible for design, layout, photography and printing. I had almost no experience or education in the field of graphic design or photography, but the urge to create&design was larger than the fear of failing… And after one year of working on the project we finally published our book ‘A Million Ways To Love Yoga’ last december!
    Elenas and Ericas masterpiece ‘Art of Attention’ gave me the nudge that I needed <3
