The DART Book Prize Contest

By Peggy Roalf   Tuesday December 11, 2018

As the year comes screaming to a close—likely one of the strangest, if not the worst of the 21st Century—this is a good time to offer the last DART Book Prize Contest of 2018!

In the past the Book Prize Contest has involved identifying, from a photo of mine, “Where in New York Am I?” Info But this one is different. It invites DART subscribers to create a  Brief History of the Three-word Greeting.

Tell me: where did these salutations originate:

Hello, Hello, Hello

‘Ang on, ‘Ang on, ‘Ang on

All Right, All Right, All Right

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

The best way to be the winner a copy of a brand new, hot off the press, on a truck heading to the office as I type, volume of AI37, or AP34, is to amaze me with your creativity, wit, and intelligence.

So do it with your friends and colleagues! Have fun with it! Send it off and pop a cork!

Contest rules are pasted below. The deadline is Monday, December 17. Winner[s] will be announced in next Tuesday’s DART Board. [Note: the photograph above offers a clue to one of the answers.]



Contest rules:

The Book Prize Contest is open to all DART subscribers—and their friends and allies.

Use this subject in your reply: I Love Art Books! Others could be inadvertently overlooked.
