[BKARTS] University of Iowa Center for the Book Campaign



This announcement is being posted to several lists: Please forgive duplication!

A generous friend of the University of Iowa Center for the Book has offered a splendid opportunity: each year we're able to raise at least $5000 in gifts from other donors, he will match those gifts with $10,000.  Your gift of $25 or more in any or all of 2003, 2004, and 2005 will generate $75 or more in much needed support for the Center each year

To encourage your gift to this campaign, we offer a very Iowa premium.  A day at the Iowa State Fair always includes a visit to the Butter Cow (see http://www.iowastatefair.com/duffylyon.html ), a great beast sculpted anew each year.  Book artist Emily Martin at her Naughty Dog Press has printed a single eight and a half by eleven inch piece of card stock which is cut and folded to create 24 panels. Six offer the challenge, "Can You Find the Butter Cow?" Twelve note many other things you can do at the State Fair.  And the Butter Cow is somewhere on the remaining six.  While the route from challenge to Cow is fun, it is not obvious.

Torture yourself!  Amaze and mystify your friends and family!  All gifts of $25 or more received before December 31, 2003 will be recognized with your very own limited edition "Can You Find the Butter Cow?", returned promptly by mail -- without the answer. When you give up in frustration but before you tear the darn thing up, you'll be able to visit the Center web page, put in your assigned code, and get the instructions.  No reverse engineering please!
