HURT BOOK GIVEAWAY 006: Aprons -- 21 Vintage Patterns and Styles

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! Congratulations to our winner: Brandy T.!



Which book is being given away?

Bramcost Publications is giving away a hurt copy of our book "Aprons -- 21 Vintage Patterns and Styles." Click the book cover below to learn more about this book!

What is a "hurt" book?

Known in the publishing industry as "hurts," hurt books are typically those with a bump or bend in the cover, pages printed correctly but bound crooked, pages miscut, etc. Hurt books are complete but have sustained a little damage so they cannot be sold as new.

How is this book hurt?

This book was miscut by the printer, causing a line of white space along the right margin. The intent of Bramcost's hurt book giveaways are to introduce vintage lifestyle enthusiasts to our books or new vintage genres readers may not have experienced before. Hurts are not available for resale. To keep our hurt book giveaways from being resold, a handful of pages are marked through with a yellow highlighter.

How do I enter this giveaway?

Tell us something that has to do with "vintage" -- a quip, interesting tidbit, something vintage you love, a Bramcost comment -- anything interesting in the comments section below.

When does the giveaway end?

The giveaway ends tomorrow, Wednesday, April 25, 2012 at midnight CST -- after which time will choose a name. We'll announce the winner at the top of this page and on Facebook/Twitter on Thursday, April 26, 2012.
