i hop i am a first

This looks great. Hope I win.

first one, first one! (or maybe not anymore). well, i’d soooo love to win something of this terrific, incredibly great stuff! lots of greetings from berlin. toni

Wow! Grain Edit is so generous!

The work is beautiful!

Hook me up…

Grain Edit smells SO good! Thanks Dave!

I wanted to be first so badly that I went straight to comments, just now I went though delicious items…sweets

Ohhhh… nice prizes. Sign me up!

Wow, great collection of goodies!!! I’d love to get my filthy paws on all that junk!

Gosh this is a killer package. I am so happy to enter!

yikes! awesome! grain edit rules! :P

I love Grain Edit, and I’ve even passed it along to friends and strangers. These giveaways are exciting enough to make me smile even without winning, but of course winning would be that much better. Thanks Grain Edit for all you do!

pardon my hindi and thinking for a living are my favorites!

Awesome! My favorite post of the year was the work of Matte Stephens. Thanks for turning me on to his great work!

Grain Edit’s great! Keep it coming…

Pick me!


I like turtles.

well alright! hook me up! great site….nice place to pick up a little inspiration when my wheels aren’t turning so fast….RIGHT ON.

Between Grain Edit and BOOOOOM, i’m suprised i actually get any work done in a day.

Keep up the awesomeness. Fight the power, don’t stop believin’ and stick it to the man!


I drooled over this work the first time I saw it here. Now I might get my hands on it? Fantastic. Three thumbs up to you!

I knew my day was gonna get a whole lot better!

Wow! That is an amazing collection of goodies! What a generous bunch of people to donate all that! Thanks guys and gals…. and thanks too to Dave for organizing this giveaway.

Sweet Fancy Moses. This is the greatest giveaway I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Just discovered GE via booooooom and am looking forward to following you.

Also, I hate to be a downer, but Twitter users can’t send a direct message to users that aren’t following them. It’s going to be hard for people (like me) to enter via Twitter unless you follow everyone back.

Awesome prizes!

great stimulus package! I loves it!

oh, i really want that pardon my hindi print. sigh. great collection. maybe this is my time to be stimulated by stimulus.

Oh yeah. Favorite post of the year – Adrian Johnson interview.

Huge fan, already subscribed to the RSS feed, thanks for such amazing content and capturing the lovely styles of mid-century modernism online!


Wow! Gossett in the house, too – great to see!

I’ve got to tell you that this is one of the most influential/inspirational sites I’ve ever bookmarked – no… THE most inspirational resource (for static work, that is) – which is why I spread the news wherever/whenever I can. This site is great because not only do you hit the nail on the head with each post, but you confine the topics to the decades holding the heartiest designers/illustrators (imo). In addition, the archives and the kickass interviews (+ the nicely-designed, easy-to-navigate site) make this an all-around irresistible experience.

If I don’t win, it’ll really suck, but honestly, just waking up to a Yummy Fresh Grain Feed in the morning always gets me through the day – and I have no doubt it’ll continue to do so.

Great job guys, and keep up the killer work!

This is awesome!


brilliant — i’m in it for the sleepy heads pillow.

+1 Spencer Cross.

I can’t direct message you either, Mr Grain Edit.

hell yeah, great bunch of prizes. really enjoyed the Eleanor Grosch interview, inspiring stuff!

I love you guys! Plllleeeasse

Thanks Spencer. We’ll follow everyone that follows us so they can send us a direct message. We might not be able to follow you immediately but we will get to it.

Of course, were I to win, I would then be in serious need of actually having some walls on which to hang things…

i already subscribe to the feed, and follow you on twitter…im a fan, what else can i say? xo!

Holy moly, those are some awesome prizes! I’ve had you on feed for quite a while now, but just started on Twitter. Yay!

I’m hoping on board the giveaway train.

Hi, I already follow you on Twitter and subscribe to your RSS. :)

You guys are great, and I enjoyed your chat on RBtL.


Grain Edit, you guys are amazing! Awesome inspiration. Can’t thank you enough for it. :]


I’ve been following you through the rss feed for quite a while now, and I just love your blog.
Winning this giveaway would be great, because next week is my birthday and it would be such a treat! :)
Will cross my fingers for it :D

HOLY *&*&*! What an incredible give away! I got so excited about the possibility to win the Tes One or an USA OK print that it took me a while to realize that the winners were getting a whole PACKAGE of amazing designs! How generous! How inspiring! Me wanty!

Very slick prizes. Must say option #2 is tops, what with the robot and all.



Awesome idea.

I agree, the prizes fit so very well!
I love Grain Edit :)

Although it’s not exactly my favorite (how could I choose???), I keep coming back to the “Eli, No!” illustrated book post. It’s incredibly engaging in its simplicity and character.

So neat! So exciting!

You are loved!

This year’s fave is a toss up between the Lammle cityscapes, old school cassette cover and awesome Dan Reisinger post. Keep it up, Dave.

I’ve reread each of those interviews a few times. I don’t know if that means they’re really good, or if I have too much time on my hands…

Is that the kind of thing that will get me this prize?

Grain Edit, too much good stuff!

I want to win so I can bask in retro typeface goodliness.

Best site around. Winning this would be the highlight of my year… so far.

Been following the RSS for a while now, always inspiring stuff – I think your posts are the ones I share most often. Thank you for organizing such a fantastic giveaway!

I liked the Eleanor Grosch interview – it chinked the armour of illustrator for me and it was interesting to see the… a-hem… debate it all turned into!

Grain Edit is FABULOSO!

I have Grain Edit on my RSS reader because I love the stuff you post. It’s one of my favorite sources of design inspiration! :)

This is freaking amazing, grain edit. Way to go!

Send you warm hello from frosty Latvia! =)

P.S. Also thank you for the interviews)

Such an inspiration, grain edit! I always love the luggage labels. Also the “This is the United Nations” book by Miroslav Sasek was really neat–I had to go out and buy it! Natuarlly since I’m studying geography. The giveaway sounds absolutely fantastic! There are so many great pieces! Thanks for all you do grain edit!

Please pick me. Grain edit is the only meaning my life has left.


more grain edit, please!

Thanks to everyone that tweeted about the giveaway on Twitter!

gwaaaah! constantly coming here for the inspirations helps me now!

Holy moley what a bunch of rad prizes! I found you through http://karenh.tumblr.com/ and I’m definitely subscribing :)

‘ello grain edit(ors)! I think my favorite post so far has to be the 1958 USSR Pavilion Brochure or El Al Airlines Playing Cards . I mean why not fly to the mother lands (Russia/Israel) while playing with gorgeous set of playing card?! Anyway good luck to all.

really nice idea…

Well hey there, I subscribed!

Thanks for the great blog!!

Been following you guys for awhile. Keep the great content coming!

Thank you for all you do, grain Edit, I visit every day!

I love this blog! I love this stuff! So cool! I want!

I love anything Tim Gough does…so that would be my pick….

Why 20th March? Did you know that was my birthday or something…could i be cheeky and have an extra present from you guy’s?

Amazing idea… :) Hope some lucky person wins something wonderful!!

I like free!

I wish the stimulus package was as cool as this giveaway! My favorite posts from the past year would have to be the Charley Harper book review, of which I had never known the name behind the work until your post. I had no idea that so much great illustration could come from a single hand, I have since become a big fan of his work. Also I can’t forget the Invisible Creature feature, great stuff from the guys.

Keep the eye candy coming!!

Oh my oh my oh my…
I’m in love with every piece of shwag up there…
Thanks Grain Edit! You’re the best.

I included you in my prize-winning Inspiredology “Top 5 Vintage Design Resources” comment. Thanks for that too!

I look forward everyday to seeing what’s new on your site and would looove to win items from such talented artists!

If I hadn’t stumbled across this, I probably wouldn’t have seen some of these sites. I think I could really find something for a friend (or myself!) on these great shops. Thanks!

Grain Edit, you are wonderful. I think the Olivetti posters are my favorites, but it’s so hard to choose. Thanks for what you do. Love the look of these giveaway items.

Loved the old school cassette covers, in fact, loving all the posts all the way from downunder-Australia way – hope I’m elegible for the giveaway :)

Hooray for the recession? Good luck everyone!

Hello! Your feed is one I look forward to reading every time I open my RSS reader, although I’d have to say my favorite post was the interview with Clark’s from Invisible Creature!

HUGE Fan! These prizes are prized possessions themself! I hope I win something – it would be a great honor as an aspiring design student in Toronto and business owner.

Take care everyone! Good luck!

i want it all.

Hi! And thanks for this sweet blog.

I’ve been glued to your feed ever since I’d signed up. Thanks for turning me on to the work of Maurizio Santucci, killer paper art and it was a fresh source of inspiration. Thanks!

I’m gonna win this time. I am.

These are really great giveaways! Good enough for me to try my (bad) luck at winning.

I never win anything.

Wow, crazy (and holy i guess!) giveaway!

You guys rock, and this is just one of the reasons why :]

i loved the swink direct mail promo piece!

I find this great site and am immediately met with an equally great giveaway. Thanks

Two ways are better than none.

Still loving all the illustrated retro goodness! Great work guys.
And if it helps the 20th is my birthday!!

thanks for the inspiration and the generous giveaway.

i must say, this is quite awesome.

I in general enjoy the examples of illustrators’ work.

Oh my goodness, you guys are amazing!

Thanks for always getting my wheels turnin’!

gosh, grain edit. thanks for energy and for sharing so much. and for the hope of winning a big fat, awesome giveaway! hope is good. and so is hand lettering.

Holy giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win.

Each prize option is great, but I would have to go with option 4. I love me some typewriters, and a poster what proclaims that would be mighty fine indeed.

Wow – what an awesome giveaway! Chad Doane sent me this direction…

Oh man….this is exciting. I just discovered your website, when I was searching for Paul Rand and found that awesome tribute video.

Yay! More fun from my fave design site!

i feel a little proud of myself that I’ve already subscribed to your feed AND twitter. but really, you guys should be proud of all this awesome-ness.

Gorgeous prizes, my fingers are crossed!

Me again, my email address was wrong in that last post! Hopefully this one can take its place.


wow! that’s a crazy haul. hope I win!

There’s so much awesome stuff here, I want to win!

How exciting! Always enjoy the site, thanks!

this is epic. my brain exploded when i read this post…

Obama could learn a thing or two from you on how to put together stimulus packages! :-)
Good stuff Dave.
I don’t recall which post I liked the best… there were a few that I really liked, but my connection here is too slow to look back through to find them. The interviews are always cool.

I want things. Give me things!!!

Pick me, pick me!

Caught wind of this from the ReadBetweentheLeading appearance.
Good stuff.
Please continue this awesomeness.

I need stimuli :-)

Grain Edit is the most lovely thing I have ever stumbled upon. Thank you for the loveliness.

I love so many posts,but a recent favorite is Iain Follett’s stamp collection. My father and uncles were avid stamp collectors, so they left me with books of stamps. I love how they are tiny pieces of art.

i like tortles

great site. keep up the good work

Wow, crazy giveaway.

I’ve been following for a while, but my favorite post in recent memory was a set of typography books from the 60s-70s. when I first saw them I immediately thought, “where can I sign up?” before realizing they were collectibles.

Amazing, I’m in! :)

Amazing!! Can i have just one part of a prize…please! :-) You guys rock!

Hey guys, I’m a brand new reader who just found out about Grain Edit from the RBtL podcast (which, in turn, I just found out about from I Love Typography). I’m a web developer currently hustling freelance and looking for full-time work. I love design resources like this blog and I especially love free goodies! Thanks and keep up the great work!

first thing in the morning: i want this sweet stuff!!!

best wishes from Denmark!

if dreams come true, this will be the first contest i win.
other than t-shirt contest in grade five. that was pretty okay, i guess. but why would i want five tshirts with the same print on them? who wants that?
variety is the spice of life. grain edit is one spicy loaf of bread.

simple, pick me

I hope I win some stuff!


these prizes are INSANE. i can’t get over it.
and hi again! i’m still trolling etsy for vintage books now & then… the moscow one turned out to be really dreamy. i was sooo glad to see the site on twitter. etc etc good luck everyone!

hi – what a really nice giveaway… keep up the good work !

Wow, what a stimulus package! I was just feeling a tad overwhelmed by the unread items in my RSS reader after spending a week out of town and then being sick, and I was thinking perhaps I should unsubscribe from a bunch of feeds since my Google reader should not be making me feel THIS bad and guilty all the time. But you just keep pulling me back in! Actually, I was never in danger of unsubscribing from Grain Edit or any of “my stories.” I was just going to ignore everything for a little while longer. ;)

if one day you open a shop,
i move to America!

I already subscribe to the feed, but I didn’t know you were on twitter! Hooray!

This is the best giveaway ever I hope I win this time!

dear grain edit,
you are my salvation in a sea of endless work. as a graphic designer stuck in a small town, i look to you daily for inspiration in this mundane and grey world.

whenever i am feeling ho-hum, or even just hum, you turn my frown upside down!

while my employers do not look highly upon the fact that i am on your site during the work hours, i pay them no mind! i MUST visit you every day! they will overcome their concerns, don’t worry.

by giving me lots of free stuff that i can share with my lovely and talented coworkers, you will ensure that i can continue to scour every post, bookmark pages, and drool on my keyboard.

of course, i understand the need for “random” selection of the winners, but i’m offering my continued love and adoration!

show a sad baby-designer some love. pick me!


Christy said it first, but I must emphasize: You’re on Twitter?! Sweet.

just saying hello!

I really really need the Grain Edit stimulus package!!!!
Love you Grain Edit!!!

I’m stimulated.

I love that Grain Edit doesn’t just feed my eye with great design, but also my mind with great interviews and ideas.

Love you guys and would love to win this ace compo!!

I am a regular visitor of boooooom.com and that’s I came to see your site. I think you are doing a great job, especially with getting so much interviews to inform us and inspire us. As an industrial design student that enjoy positive graphic design work, this site is a good inspiration for me in designing products.

Thank you for having this giveway and having this site !

This is really good for us, especially now.

Hey a giveaway that’s nice.

My favorite section of the site is “off our bookselves” and my favorite article is this one: http://grainedit.com/2008/11/03/1950s-sas-airlines-menu/ with the 1950s menu.

why hello!

if you could send me a copy of that saul bass illustrated book (henri’s walk to paris), that would be great! :)
anything else will do just nicely to…

Great idea!

Yes!! Hope that I make the cut this time.

Love the USA OK print from AA even though the UP of Michigan is missing. We never liked the Yoopers that much anyways…

pick me please.
i want that steve harrington print!

I need stimulus. badly.

Hello Grain Editors,

I have signed up for your feeding of the RSSes. Please shower me with gifts.


I signed up for email updates. Love the prizes..very sweet!

To be chosen, such a honor. I wait with worry and wonder.

It is hard to pick my favorite post, there are too many great ones.

I look forward to the grain edit updates each day and wish there were a way I could contribute! Maybe by becoming a winner!?

I second my wife’s favorite! http://grainedit.com/2008/11/03/1950s-sas-airlines-menu/

That ‘Danny’ shining poster shall be mine. BTW did you know that they used out-takes of the Shining in Blade Runner?

nice nice nice! i cross my fingers too!

Hola grain edit! I don’t have one favorite post because all the work you show is truly inspiring. However, the one that sticks out to me the most are the Bombo and Swink posts. Thank you for making me go to work in my 8-5 cubicle only to view your web page there. haha! :)

wow. These are some pretty sick prizes.

This is an awesome giveaway. I love your site.

My favorite post is the one about the book “Eli, no!” My son’s name is Eli, and even though he’s just a little over a year old, he’s always getting into some sort of trouble. I hear or say “Eli, no!” a thousand times a day. But he’s also as charming as that little dog, too. I hope they make that book available.

Thanks for all you do!


I need a stimulus! :)

I love all the Features, studio tours and interviews.

Those prizes look amazing! I hope I win.

that steve harrington print looks lovely!

Awesome blog


I heart Frank Chimero interview!

Hooray Grain Edit! I love the old picture books you post, and the matchbooks, airline paraphernalia, oh I just love it all. Thank you!

hello grain edit. i just found your website with in the past year and love all the stuff you show. you show so many rare and odd things that are really interesting and have great design work. It made me dig under my bed and find these old stamps from Israel and I have no idea how I got them because I have never been there.

I have been a subscriber for many months. I love Grain Edit! Great giveaway!

What a stimulating package you have.

This stimulus package might not be bigger or more expensive than the government one, but it’s definitely sexier. Really enjoy the site, especially clips like the one about the Italian Modern Design book. I wish I could get my hands on a copy of that.

A great give away. I was first directed to the site via Adrian Johnson’s site, now I just can’t get enough.

Wow, those are some amazing prize packages!

ooooh, exciting :-)

yay! grain edit is awesome!

I can’t possibly chose a favorite post. You have great taste! I love the historical posts… Thanks for the efforts!!

Now that was an awful lot of personal info for a random post.

Good luck to all.

i have been a fan of grain edit for some time now and i look forward to seeing what you guys come up with everyday. so many good artists, interviews, graphics and everything in between. i would say my favorite thing so far has been the artist features section. all of those people you’ve interviewed are my new favorite artists. i’ve actually been a mike davis fan for awhile and got him to do in interview as well as a couple of graphics for my company. i spread the word about your site to everyone who might be interested and will keep on doing so! thanks for the great site and content. keep doing what you’re doing!!!

I am hoping for the chance to fulfill a request from my 6 six year, who really wants a monster mix-up from Tad Carpenter.
My favorite post here would be, obviously, Tad Carpenters feature. And, the Swink Direct Mail Promo Piece feature left me coveting Studio on Fires skills.

Hello! As a communication design student I check your blog daily for inspiration, and love everything I see! I think the last blog that really floored me was Siggi Eggertsson’s portraits — amazing! But really, almost all the work I see at grain edit floors me. Thanks for doing such a great job finding the pieces, and even hooking us readers up with some of them! What a holy giveaway indeed.

Hello! I absolutely love the stuff you blokes post on this blog and yes, I do watch ya via RSS.

Hey Grain Edit, found out about you guys via TR42 and I’ve been on your RSS feed for a little while now and just followed you on twitter. Hopefully I win! I actually think it would be a really good idea for you to pick me… just sayin.

You’re my new favorite site. Love the designs that you post. You’re my new source of new artists.

Very cool goodies! I may have to get a twitter just to get a better shot at winning.

My girl left me and took everything. I trod in dog-doo this morning. I’m reading Grainedit in the Apple store.

Can I have option 4 if I win please?
