About Holiday with Matthew Mead

Holiday with Matthew Mead is a book-azine that encompasses all that I love about the holiday season: the traditions, celebrations and magic that is the holiday season. The pages of Holiday with Matthew Mead are filled with fresh, easy ideas that can be achieved in two or three steps. It's a novel approach to almost everything holiday, and I hope you take a chance to pick it up and see how these updated ideas might inspire you. With 144 pages of holiday inspiration - featuring well-known and admired designers, bloggers and top-notch stories - and printed on beautiful paper (while not drowning in ads!), we consider Holiday with Matthew Mead part book/part magazine - a publication that you will keep from year to year and add to your collection of Holiday decorating, crafting and cooking magazines and books.

We are also taking a novel approach to the publishing and distribution of Holiday. Instead of finding our book-azine on newsstands, we are bringing Holiday directly to you, the reader. Holiday with Matthew Mead will be available for sale here, by pre-order only; thus not only will you be guaranteed a copy fresh off the presses, but it will also be shipped directly to your mail box in October, 2010. So, head over to our secure shopping cart and check-out found here and put the kettle or coffee pot on and get ready to curl up with some seasonal inspiration, in plenty of time to beat the holiday rush!

Consider it our gift to you...!
