Win a Copy: The Cult of Beauty Exhibition Catalog

The Cult of Beauty: The Victorian Avant-Garde 1860-1900 ends its run at the Legion of Honor on June 17th. I previously reviewed the catalog back in April – and now, you have the opportunity to win a copy!

The catalog describes the styles utilized by the Aesthetic Movement (Japonism, Neo-Classisism, and Pre-Raphaelite), and provides insights on the artists, designers, makers and writers of the era – from William Morris to Liberty & Co, to Oscar Wilde, Whistler, Gowin and Beardsley.

To enter: In the comments section below, tell me who your favorite designer (fashion or decorative) from this period is, and more importantly, WHY? Include links to a particular design from this period if you can.

Deadline: Wednesday, June 6, 2012.

  1. Thank you so much for hosting another amazing giveaway. This book looks AMAZING. I’ve been wanting to learn more about the Aesthetic movement, so would love to win a copy.
    Although not really associated with the movement, my favorite designer of this period has to be Charles Frederick Worth. His designs are just luscious- a fantastic composition of design, embellishment, and texture. I’ve been smitten with them for years.
    Here’s some of my favorites:
