I mentioned briefly in our Re-Covered Books contest for The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle that we may have additional prizes, and so here are some additional prizes. In addition to the $100 Amazon gift card you’ll also get all the cool books and gifts you see above thanks to the Princeton Architectural Press. The folks at Princeton Press have an amazing selection of titles from the biggest artists and designers out there, and I’m so happy that they’ve chosen to help us out with our contests. So what do you get exactly?
