I love handwritten letters, I often found some on fleamarkets but I'm looking for those very graphic, like penmanship...
 
I often wonder if there are some tutorials of my work, but I never had the time to really make some... and I also think it is good to found your own way to do something that inspire you. But I wanted to share a bit about the process of creating one of the 2014 calendar page and of the cover the last THREE ebook, since both use common elements.

Start with the source, after buying old letters dating from the late 1800s, I scanned them in high definition.

may card of the letterpress calendar

 
Before continuing, I want to thank those who have already pre-ordered the calendar (and those who will soon do it!). Half of the deluxe edition is already gone, it's very motivating for the future. Printing should start this week ... I also created a Facebook page dedicated to the project if you want to follow in detail.
 
So for the 2014 letterpress calendar, like for the 2012 one, I illustrated sentence using graphics. For the May page, these are handwriting. I think the pictures explain my job better than me, so here is a breakdown of the process...

The principle of composition is the same for the cover of Volume 2 of the eBook THREE, but this time keeping the texture of the paper and ink.

    Awesome work. It's really a treat that you showed your process for creating these calendars. Too often people are unwilling to share their creative process.
