It's Giveaway Time!

Considering as how this here blog has just celebrated it's 1 year birthday and just passed 39,000 page views, I thought it about time I do a little giveaway. Plus, it has been an absolute age since I last did a giveaway.

This time, I'm going to be giving away a copy of Paul Strathern's "The Artist, The Philosopher and The Warrior"...

This book, all about three of the most influential men in Renaissance Italy is utterly fantastic and one of my favourite books on the period.

All you have to do to win this excellent book is:
  • Like the facebook page
  • And leave a comment on this post
The winner will be chosen by a random number generator and the closing date is Sunday October 7th!
