Comment to win a free HistoryShots print – winners announced

Posted to Contests  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Happy Friday, everyone. Leading into the weekend, HistoryShots has kindly put three prints up for grabs to decorate that plain wall of yours with data and information. HistoryShots has been around for a while, but in case you’re not familiar, they “create elegant graphics and diagrammatic art that visually tell stories about subjects, time periods and events.” Some are vintage reprints from the 1800s and others are original designs.

How do you win a free print? Go to the HistoryShots list of available prints, and then come back here and leave a comment saying which one you want by Sunday, March 27 at 10pm. I’ll pick three winners at random. Good luck!

Update: Winners picked. If you won, you’ve received an email from me. Thanks for entering!
