Is it just me, or is the year passing at an alarmingly swift rate? I’m deep in deadline mode behind-the-scenes and when I looked at the calendar today, I refused to believe that it was already the end of May.
Anyway, last week I received a mysterious extra copy of this book, Easy Shibori Tye Dye Techniques by Studio TAC Creative, which I translated. I always get one advance copy for my translation work (the book will officially release in August though it’s available for preorder now), so it’s unusual for me to be in possession of two copies. Would you like one?
It’s a super fun collection of Shibori methods, and I’m especially in love with this “stole” (“shawl”, might have been a better translation, but that’s what the author called it):
There are many ingenious methods using various folding techniques and household materials, and I really enjoyed learning more about Shibori dyeing (I also translated this book).
If you would like to enter the giveaway, please leave a comment below. As always, I’m not too picky about what kind of comment you leave, but if you’d like something to focus on, how about your summer plans? Or if you’re on the other side of the globe, autumn/winter plans? Are you traveling? Taking on a new hobby? Just enjoying the changing season and taking it one day at a time? If all goes well, my little family and I will visit the Midwest and Japan this summer. The last time I saw my parents (they live in Shizuoka, Japan now) was in 2019!!! Fingers crossed that the stars will align for a reunion.
I’ll keep the giveaway open until Friday, June 9th. International entries are, of course, welcome! Good luck! xo
