I bet you're wondering when your FIRST call was, right? Well, I'm a little late jumping on this bandwagon but here are the details in case you've got a few tricks up your sleeve and can get a submission in before January 5th:
"Rockport Publishers/Quarry Books is an international publisher of high-quality visual and idea books for design professionals and creative enthusiasts—crafters, artists, and designers. (Check out our distinctive books at: www.quarrybooks.com.)
We are seeking submissions for 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse, an upcoming book by Garth Johnson of ExtremeCraft.com, which will feature 21st Century craft and design, all made with recycled, upcycled, repurposed and reused items. We are looking for the best examples of paper and book arts, jewelry, clothing, home and personal accessories, furniture, art, and miscellanea for possible publication. We invite designers, artists, visionaries and crafters of all stripes to submit their work.
High quality photography is essential. We are looking for photographs of the finished work, not step-by-step shots. All images must be AT LEAST 1400x1750 pixels at 300 dpi. There is no entry form for the book--all we need is the Grant of Rights form and an image list in Microsoft Word or PDF format. Please upload them with your images."
Deadline: January 5, 2009

I would've loved to enter my pillow case recycled aprons, vintage fabric and button recycled brooches, and Ryan's recycled plexi-glass artwork. :( I hope someone reading this still has the chance and will to apply. Good luck!!!
