You might have noticed, today TDF is all about Beci Orpin!  Actually, we are hereby naming January 9th official BECI ORPIN DAY.  You can all celebrate by creating multicoloured paper collages and re-arranging your pinboards and eating tacos.  :)

In addition to kicking off our first guest blog of 2012, this week we’re giving away five of Beci’s super gorgeous brand new artists book, published by our fave local indie publishing house – Erm Books!

Beci’s sweet new book is entitled ‘Compendium of Me‘ and is such a fabulous little hardback publication which gives a unique window in Beci’s hypercolour world! Amongst the 28 vibrant pages you’ll see detailed illustrations of the beautiful books on Beci’s bookcase, quirky toys, fabrics, paper and other ephemera that forms part of Beci’s daily visual landscape at home and in the studio, which in turn informs her artwork and illustration.  It is truly a visual feast!!

Compendium of Me is the 4th book in ERM’s artist imprint series, and is ridiculously good value at just $20!  Outrageous.

You can purchase the book here.  However, if you’d like the opportunity to WIN one of five copies, you can simply leave a comment on Beci’s Guest Blog between now and 10.00pm this Thursday January 12th to be in the running! We’ll announce the lucky winners on Friday morning.

Big thanks to Beci and the clever bookish people at ERM for this gorgeous giveaway!

And HAPPY BECI ORPIN DAY to all!
