Days Like These...

Hard to believe, but it's nearly time to think about 2015 calendars. For the last few years, we've created two different wall versions, and 2015's are ready to go! The first features a checkerboard pattern made of reversed wood type, along with another pattern created from wood borders. 20151You can see the lovely texture and overlapping effects in this close up. The inks are all translucent enough to show the different layers of print.

201542015 is set in Gothic Round, a typeface we have in limited quantities and that doesn't often see the light of day. Here it is coupled with the borders.

20152The calendar pages are not letterpress printed (sorry), though they are built from scans of the type in our collection. Printed on text weight paper, there's room for writing little notes before tearing off the page as the month comes to an end.

20155The second calendar features a Superchunk quote that often pops into my brain when driving the Starshaped Fiat. So it combines both of those things (though the Fiat here is an original 500....someday).
