Our Runners Up Showcase.

Typically, we share only the winning Book of the Month entry but the quality of customer books we see seem to be reaching greater heights with each passing month. So, rather than let those amazing finalists and their projects go by unseen, we've decided to showcase them here.

Because at MILK, we don't believe in keeping beauty to ourselves.
