Lark Books is Looking for Artist Submissions

Lark Books produces some really nice how to books that I really enjoy. They are practically taking over the how to section in Barnes and Noble too! How awesome is that?!
Since they produce so many books, they often need fresh, new talent to appear in their books. Also, they pay over $100 for each submission in some of their books, so please check this out if you have the time to.

"Artist Submissions

Are you an artist who would like to submit some of your work for consideration? We are always looking to feature new and established artists and hope you’ll join us!"

"Mixed Metal Jewelry
Author: Mary Hettmansperger
Editor: Marthe Le Van
Entry deadline: March 16, 2009

Author Mary Hettmansperger’s newest book, Mixed Metal Jewelry, will be interspersed with beautiful gallery images, and we hope you’ll submit images of your jewelry for consideration! We’re looking for pieces that mix metals—silver, gold, copper, iron, bronze, aluminum, etc.—in interesting and creative ways. Combinations of all forms of metal, such as sheet, wire, clay, and recycled materials, are welcome, as are all techniques. Your work will serve as an example and as inspiration for readers. Mixed Metal Jewelry is due for release in April 2010. Submission to the book is free

500 Found-Object Works
Juror: Suzie Millions
Editor: Suzanne Tourtillott
Entry deadline: March 15, 2009

Lark Books seeks one-of-a-kind images of found-object art to publish in a juried collection representing the most creative examples in this exciting genre. While material options are endless (recycled/repurposed wood, paper, plastics, electronics and the like), we will accept only professional quality photography. Due to trademark
considerations, very few works featuring recognizable brand names or logos will be accepted. This publication is scheduled for release in Fall 2010. There is no entry fee.

500 Vases
Juror: Julia Galloway
Editor: Suzanne Tourtillott
Entry deadline: February 2, 2009

Lark Books seeks high-quality, one-of-a-kind images of ceramic vases to publish in a juried collection of works from around the world. We will consider both functional and decorative submissions as well as diverse designs, materials, and techniques ranging in style from traditional to modern. We accept high-quality transparencies, 35-mm slides, and high-resolution digital images. 500 Vases, to be released in the spring of 2010, aims to be an inspiring collection for beginning and professional ceramics workers, as well as collectors and enthusiasts. There is no entry fee.

Jewelry Design Challenge: 30-Minute Earrings
Editor: Marthe Le Van
Entry Deadline: January 26, 2009

Are you a skilled and imaginative jewelry designer who is up for a challenge? Great! Your mission is to design a pair of earrings that can be made in 30 minutes flat.

30-Minute Earrings will showcase more than 50 incredibly stylish step-by-step projects that can be created without investing too much of a valuable commodity—time! The selected earring designs will be modern and sophisticated and encompass many different styles and techniques. The common denominator will be fast projects that look terrific!

PS: In 30-Minute Earrings, we won’t be teaching fundamental jewelry making techniques. Designers can assume that their readers are already proficient (and quick!) at skills such as sawing, soldering, and finishing.

Accept the challenge!"

hey katherine, it's kia.
i'm having a little girl! :)
I've got this metal shelf display that I think you could really use for your craft fairs. my work was going to throw it out but it's in great condition. It used to be a burt's bees display. You could probably change the background paper. You think you would like to have it? no cost. just free. email me or something!
