the 2009 calendars are here!

At long long last, I have crawled out from under my annual private letterpress hibernation and emerged with the 2009 "Edges of Bounty" letterpress linoleum calendar. The entire project is based on a miraculous book entitled "Edges of Bounty" that was published earlier this year by Heyday Books, written by William Emery, featuring the magnificent photographs of Scott Squire.

It is a California Central Valley, food themed calendar with thirteen original linoleum blocks, printed on delectable Canson papers in delectable hues. All quotations throughout the calendar are borrowed liberally from William's essays, set in Bell MT typeface, which were printed from polymer plates. Calendars are $45 each; $3 per calendar for shipping. 8" x 12.5" trim size, limited edition of 100 calendars.

Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah!
