Friday freebies: Visual history posters from Timeplots – winners announced

Posted to Contests  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

It's Friday, and the weekend's staring you in the face. You look like you need some free stuff. Timeplots has kindly put up three visual history prints up for grabs. In case you're not familiar, Timeplots takes complex history stories, like the American presidency or the changing nature of the Senate, and puts them in visual form.

How to win

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below by Monday, March 7, 2011 Tuesday, March 8, 2011, 7:00pm PST. Let's go with... your favorite food. Yeah, that should be fun. I'll pick three winners at random, and they will have their pick of any one of the five prints Timeplots has to offer. I'd probably go with the Senate one myself.

One entry per person, please.

Good luck!

Update: If you were one of three lucky winners, you should have received an email from me by now. Thanks all for participating! If you still want one, you can still buy them over on Timeplots.
