    I would love to own the Shakespeare’s Love Sonnets book. Having that collection in one book is pretty fantastic.

    Sarah says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I wish there would be more book giveaways on blogs… coffee table books are so often things I want, but wouldn’t always buy for myself! I’ve been wanting the Woodcut book for a long time, but the “Where, the Why, and the How” book sounds fascinating. It marries my artistic and science-y sides in a beautiful way.

    Stacey says:

    My favorites are ALL the Moleskine books. I can never narrow it down to just one because those notebooks are the best for ideas, planning, and creating!

    Audra says:

    Paris in Color looks pretty fab but then again so does Flora and the Flamingo! I am a sucker for design and kids books!

    Pau Sa says:

    Wow such a different and amazing giveaway! My favorite book on chroniclebooks.com would be Studio Life by Sarah Trigg. Being an artisan myself I am in love with craftsmanship in general and curious to see how other would give life to their workspace and experience their day to day routine.
    Thank you 🙂

    Paris Changing looks like such an intriguing coffee table book…

    Kristy says:

    After looking at the website my pinterest wishlist has grown a bit, but I think my number one pick would be “I Was Here – A Travel Journal for the Curious Minded.” Travel and vacations always go by so fast, this seems like a wonderful way to make the memories last.

    emilie says:

    i’ve been eager to check out creative block, but time and tide looks beautiful too!

    Briana says:

    Helen says:

    The Tartine Bread and Feast cookbooks to help me creatively transition into eating/making more vegetarian meals. Also Blog, Inc. by one of my favorite bloggers to give me the guidance to take that leap and make my own blog!

    shawn says:

    I think the story behind The other Audubon sounds wonderful and will probably look that one up. I also love any of the books that are listed.

    Lea Anna says:

    I’ve always been a fan of those Polaroid Notes and just never picked them up.

    Allison says:

    My favorite book is “Meanwhile in San Francisco”. Wendy McNaughton is my favorite illustrator, and I’ve been patiently awaiting for the book to hit shelves!

    Erin says:

    Creative Block Please!

    Lucie says:

    The Where The Why The How sounds really interesting!! Blog Inc by oh joy seems like it’d be a good read as well 🙂

    Audrea says:

    Oh man. I love all of these! I want all of those listed above – as well as “Paris, Women and Bicycles”! <3

    Wait, I’m supposed to find just ONE favorite book? That’s a challenge. The collection you’re giving away is already incredible. But if I have to choose, I’d say Typography Sketchbooks. I’ve been lusting after that beauty since I first saw it in a little bookstore not too long ago!

    Ari D. says:

    Airline Mini Edition: Style at 30,000 feet would be fun for me to check-out and fun for my airplane obsessed (all aspects 😉 son to take a look at too.

    Lindsay says:

    I’ve been following Chronicle for years! I love all of their books! Their “Hand-Lettering Ledger” looks like just the thing I need to perfect my calligraphy!!!

    caitlin says:

    The “Time and Tide” book is my favorite! Perfect for summer.

    belinda says:

    i’d have to go with “What on Earth Are You Wearing?”. what’s better than fashion and dreamy illustrations? not much.

    Kaitlyn says:

    Definitely been wanting to buy Creative Block! What an awesome giveaway!

    Kate says:

    Over and Over A Catalog of Hand-Drawn Patterns Princeton Architectural Press

    Tori says:

    I’m infatuated with coffee table books. I really have been wanting the creative block book as well!

    Liz says:

    While I’m totally smitten with their kiddo books I think right now the next book I will buy is Tartine Bread, by Chad Robertoson. It looks so lovely and incredibly helpful for bread baking.

    I would love all the books you are giving away and the “Furniture Makeover” looks awesome too!

    Liz says:

    I need to buy the book “Mom Inc.” for my friend who is trying to start a home business so she can stay home with her kiddos. I have so many of Chronicles books already. I need to add the rest of these to my collection 😉

    esther says:

    i’ve been really into braids – learning how to do them so “braids, buns and twists” is interesting to me at the moment.

    Macie H. says:

    I really love The Polaroid Notes book. I could stare at pretty pictures all day long! I also like the Carpe Diem Journal – I seem to have a habit of collecting journals in hopes that someday I might actually fill their pages with my own words.

    Katy says:

    Wow, those “Pretty Polaroid Notes” look so cool!! Would love those. My favorite book of all time? To Kill a Mockingbird. Book that looks super interesting and gorgeous over on Chronicle Books is Feast by Sarah Copeland! Look at that yummy cover!!

    Sarah says:

    I totally need the Carpe Diem Journal! This is an awesome giveaway. 🙂

    Taylor says:

    I love me some good books! We have an absurd collection of them and I would love to add to that! I’m a huge fan of cookbooks and I love the ones that chronicle offers, but I have to say, I’ll probably get that awesome Frida Kahlo paper doll book for my lovely sister.


    Melissa says:

    Paris In Color needs to be on my coffee table asap!

    Vanessa says:

    Paris in Color! Paris is already a beautiful city and seeing it through the eyes of the author in categories of color makes it so much more inspiring.

    Alice says:

    Decorate with Flowers looks great–I’ve always wanted to learn!

    Jillian says:

    polaroid love notes!

    Karissa says:

    Both “stylists” and “creative block” are on my wishlist already! 🙂

    Decorate with Flowers – should be a good follow up to the designlovefest flower workshop!

    AH! This is a dream giveaway for me! As an illustrator, photographer and avid reader, I collect books. I’d love to have these for my shelves. I’ve been lusting after 100 Years of Fashion for ages!

    Johan says:

    Holy cow, amazing giveaway! I’ve been wanting to read Creative Block! Pick me! 🙂

    Rachel says:

    Decorate with Flowers would be my top choice!

    Libby E. says:

    I would love the 100 years of fashion, but any of these really would be AWESOME! Thanks!

    Christa says:

    The Modern Magazine: Visual Journalism in the Digital Age looks amazing – but they all look amazing!


    Anna says:

    Lynda says:

    Modern Sauces, Blog, Inc., The Where, the Why, and How 75 Artists Illustrate Wonders and mysteries of Science, 100 Graphic Ideas that Changed the World, Paris in Color

    Heather says:

    ALL THE BOOKS LOOK AMAZING! However, I think I really want to read Decorate with Flowers!!! I need a little inspiration lately! 🙂

    Anna says:

    I love the Polaroid Notes!
    I often write postcards or cards to my friends to let them know I am thinking of them and wish them a lovely day or week…I just love how happy they are when they see a personal note/postcard in the mail instead of bills, advertisements and such…and often I even get one in return…so special to me.

    Caitlin says:

    Wow, these books would really help me stay inspired! The decorating with flowers would really help me change up my room, but I have to say the Get Unstuck would help me with my graphic design!!

    ALEXANDRA says:

    I’ve been eyeing the Tartine cookbook.

    Marie says:

    I’m going to Paris on my honeymoon this summer and would love “Paris in Color” to build the excitement!

    cory says:

    Current favorite is Blog Ing By Joy Deangdeelert Cho

    This is a rough question to answer! Paris in Color, Tides in Time, Stylists, Decorate and Get Unstuck would definitely be winners on my coffee table!

    I love Holly Becker’s “Decorate”!

    “Pretty Polaroid Notes,” please!

    Krystina says:

    Bee says:

    I love Holly and I’m so excited for the release of Decorate with Flowers. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks, Bri!

    Laurie says:

    CaitSchlabach says:

    Feast by Sarah Copeland, photographs by Yunahee Kim! With such a bright and beautiful layout this vegetarian cookbook PERFECTLY illustrates how cooking can be an exceptionally creative outlet. Also, it tastes great. And when art tastes great AND is healthy… I’m mean, we’re clearly all winners here, right? 🙂 Food:creativity:color:life:winning!

    Kayla says:

    These books look awesome! I’m moving soon, and I’d really like the Decorate and Decorate With Flowers book to help me spruce up my new place. I also thought Sustainability in Interior Design looked pretty cool.

    Kate says:

    I am very curious about the Creative Block. Chronicle always has great books– I love to read them, and I love to give them as gifts!

    andrea says:

    My house and I are lacking of nice inspirational books like these. These are all amazing!!.
    Besides all these beautiful books I have always loved the Scribbles and Doodles series books!!! I always buy two copies one for me and one for mi nice 🙂

    Alicia says:

    So many good books and out of all of them I am drawn to Farts in the Wild. Would be hilarious to give to my husband, ha!

    Cortnei says:

    Creative block for sure! But want them all!

    I love all of these books but Creative Block!…I’ve looked through it and it’s incredible.

    Gillian says:

    They’re all visually stunning – I could choose them all but the one that sticks out to me and applies to my life would be “Blog, Inc. Blogging for Passion, Profit, and to Create Community”. Plus a moleskine, because one can never have too many moleskine’s. 😉

    Tanya says:

    Such great books! I would love to have a few on display at my home!

    Amanda says:

    What a windfall this would be! I dream of Paris, and I would be in a special dreamland with Paris in Color…

    Lynsey says:

    I love everything Chronicle puts out -but especially would LOVE the creative block book! So much inspiration!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    What a beautiful collection of books. I love the Decor8 book….I found so much inspiration for my current house which we bought without even seeing it except through emailed photos. I planned my house for an entire year while still in California by looking through Holly’s book. Can’t wait for the new book to hit the US book stores!

    Christine says:

    aaahhh, this would be so awesome to own! i had forgotten how much i wanted comic genius portraits of funny people. so that’s definitely going in my shopping cart asap. also, after only living in nyc for a year, it’s still incredibly magical to me. new york jackie would bring a little of that romantic magic to my coffee table!

    Meghan Oona says:

    Great giveaway! I just gave away a ton of books so hopefully this’ll be a “one door shuts, another opens” type of situations 😉 Anyway, searching through the Chronicle site, it’s hard to pinpoint a favorite, but I’m partial to “Star Wars: The Jedi Path A Manual for Students of the Force!” And drooling over all the books in the giveaway, especially “Creative Block.” Fingers crossed! <3

    Bessie says:

    House Blessings Prayers, Poems, and Toasts Celebrating Home and Family looks inspirational!

    Angel says:

    Chronicle puts out my all time favorite: Darth Vader and Son, along with Vader’s Little Princess. They just take me back to my childhood.

    Kristi M says:

    I really want to read Creative Block. I have heard great things about it!

    christi c says:

    I love ‘Farts in the Wild’ – my fiance and I came across it in a shop and almost doubled over laughing. It was so funny! But for my serious side, I’ll say ‘Paris in Color’ – a beautiful city broken down by all its lovely shades. Heaven.

    Alexa says:

    Favorite by far is Paris in Color or 642 Things to Write About!

    Nicole says:

    I’ve been fascinated by children’s books lately and I love the Amazing Animals series.

    christine says:

    Good luck everyone!


    ignu says:

    It’s almost an impossible task to choose one favorite Chronicle book, but I have been coveting “Pictorial Webster’s: A Visual Dictionary of Curiosities” for quite some time now. Everything Chronicle produces is so beautifully done!

    Lindsey says:

    So many great books, but I am going to have to go with the Creative Block book. I could use it right about now…:)

    sarah.a says:

    great selection. i’ve had my eye on the new decor8 book (a current favorite on my list!) as well as Typography Sketchbooks and Peek-a-Who is one of my daughters favorite books!

    Emily says:

    It’s impossible to pick just one! I’ve been a huge fan of the Paris in Color art prints for a while. Having the book would be great!! I’m also very intrigued by the My Beautiful Life diary. I’m not the best artist, but it would be awesome to be able to look back at all different sketches that represent my life 🙂

    Savannah says:

    I absolutely adore “Comic Genius” from Matt Hoyle. I have such a soft spot for Steve Martin.

    Sarah says:

    Oh, wow. I’ve been wanting to get my hands on some of these books for quite some time! Creative Block and Stylists look absolutely lovely! Those would have to be my two favorites out of this list.

    Maureen C says:

    I have always loved Holly’s book decorate! Chronicle Books has the best of design and cooking catagories – but one of the all time best line of books for kids has to be ‘good night, good night construction site’. My nephews can’t live without it!
    Love the giveaway – thank you!

    kelli says:

    Taro Gomi’s Scribble It. It’s a book of drawing prompts that are printed on postcards — just draw, color and drop in the mail!

    tiffany says:

    i love ‘the art of love’ and ‘swell a year of waves’

    Kelsey says:

    Pick a favorite from Chronicle? Impossible! But I’m a big fan of Sanjay Patel’s “Ramayana: Divine Loophole.”

    Holly says:

    How do I choose?!?!

    But I’m sure that Grumpy Cats book would look perfect on my coffee table.

    Natalie C says:

    Pick a favorite? besides most the amazing books in your giveaway? I had to stop getting their newsletter because my paycheck would have went to books, but I think today’s favorite is Decorate 1,000 Professional Design Ideas for Every Room in Your Home

    Hi there — what a GREAT give-away. Such a hard choice. I’m a HUGE Holly Becker fan, but I have to say that the Braids, Buns & Twists looks very fun.

    PS — as a big Chronicle Book lover, their cookbook section is one of my very favorites. Little Paris Kitchen, Flour (and Flour 2), Chicken & Egg. Don’t even get me started. I could go on for HOURS.

    Best – Carrie

    Melissa says:

    I love the whole collection. I think I might have a new list for books on my wishlist. Decorate with Flowers is one of my favorites even though I don’t really have just one. I have been following the release of the book.

My most recent find of theirs is “Hello Wine”, which I was actually able to check out from the library to sneak peek. It’s a GREAT book for beginners and I’d love to own a copy for my own kitchen one day. I also love their “Darth Vader and Son” book and its sequel “Vader’s Little Princess”. Too cute!!

    Michelle A. says:

    I love browsing the Chronicle Books shop whenever I am downtown to get inspiration for my work. The books on this list are among my favorites in the store but I have to admit I am excited for the Summertime book to come out in August. After growing with foggy SF summer, I decided I want to spend a year traveling and chasing summer. Even tho it has been on my bucket list for a while, I’d be very happy with the coffee table book until I’ve saved up enough to skip town with a suitcase full of bikinis, straw hats and lots of novels.

    Molly says:

But I would love to have The Art of I Love You. However, I am fascinated by illustrators who use watercolor and drawing and painting to illustrate. Meanwhile In San Fransisco, Lincoln Memorial, and Josephine(The Dazzling Life of Josephine Baker) look beautiful! I must say I enjoy the children’s book and those beautiful picture books the most. Thank you!

    Mili says:

    This is a beautiful collection, but my favorite is “This is Happening”!

    Sarah says:

    Omg this would be a DREAM to win, aside from all these beauties I would love to have The Sweet Dress Book by Laurence King from Chronicles lifestyle section. So many gorgeous books!!!

    Liz says:

    They are all such eye candy…filled with beautiful and meaningful content. Adore all of them.

    There’s just something about Time and Tide. Gorgeous but tinged with just a hint of sadness brought on by nostalgia — and not the kind that’s necessarily generated from personal experience.

    I’ll stop 🙂

    Rachel Ake says:

I absolutely love color; it’s something that drove me to become a graphic designer, so I’m really interested to see how another person perceives colors in one of the most famous cities on earth. Like graphic design, fashion is very much shaped by the culture surrounding it-whether it be a pleasing to the eye or not. I’m interested to see what this book offers.
