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.
