While I worked on the letterpress calendar with Joe White last year, he told me he was designing playing cards deck... The result is just amazing ! When I heard it was released I want to have one for me, but also want to propose it to you ! So it is now available in the shop ! I am still waiting for them, but I an wait to propose them to you !

Every single playing card within the Contraband deck was designed from scratch - even the Aces, Jokers, and court cards display attention to detail never before achieved. Over a year in the making - and every minute of it is visible in the final design.

1800's tales & wood letters

posted in Shop updates | Objects & shopping | Vintage  at 9.17 AM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) listening Benjamin Clementine

I have these beautiful pages for some months and I finally decided to sell them... what I like is to find things, I can not keep everything ! These are original vintage page of "Fables d'Esope", a collection of tales, and as it states "Dedicated to Bonaparte" on the first page so I guess it is dated from early 1800's. I found these in a second hand market, and the quality of the print is amazing, as well as the drawings. Perfect to be framed.

 

I have put 6 for sale in the found section of the shop, only one of each available of course. And they are 20% off as winter sale offer is still running...

Final post about the calendar ! The special edition (Glow in the dark front cover and painted edges) are now sold out... well I keep 10 copies of the glow in the dark edition for a special coming project ! The normal edition is still available, and now at 20% off.

 

The calendar was featured on several sites as FPO (For Print Only), Howdesign, and a little interview about the process at I am the lab ! I also update my portfolio (the calendar, but also the Niepi magazine & my 2014 business card), and still working on an updated version of www.letterpress-calendar.com !

 

Here comes pictures of the final calendar to let you deceide if you want it !

Excellent work! However, I think the B.O.I.D project dragon is too similar to the Wales national dragon, even the gold coins look...
