Bas Bleu Cover Contest

Autumn 2010 Bas Bleu catalog coverAttention, creative bluestockings: We have a contest for you! Help us brainstorm bookish concepts for one of our Winter 2014 catalog covers.

The rules are simple: You, dear readers, will submit your ideas for a reading-themed Bas Bleu catalog cover. We’ll select our favorite entry and turn it over to illustrator Allen Spetnagel, who will render it as an image for our Winter issue. (We’re including a few samples of Allen’s previous work for Bas Bleu, to get your creative juices flowing.) The reader behind the winning design will receive a $100 Bas Bleu gift certificate, proud ownership of the original art, and, of course, bragging rights.

Autumn 2012 Bas Bleu catalog coverYou can submit your idea one of three ways:

  1. in the comments section of this blog.
  2. in the comments section of our Facebook page.
  3. in a private Facebook message. (If it’s easier to convey your idea with a sketch, you can attach the image as a JPEG to the message.)

In order to give Allen enough time to work his magic, all entries must be received no later than September 27, 2013. Now get to brainstorming; we can’t wait to see what you dream up!

  1. My idea is this: Famous, easily recognizable literary figures such as Sherlock Holmes or Scrooge sitting around a sort of “gentlemen’s” club room (I say “sort of” because, of course, ladies are allowed.) Perhaps, there is a fireplace in the background. Each is engrossed in a book but the book is one dealing with a different literary figure from the reader.
