Walter 2 is in progress and it will include an article about handlettring with a selection of projects. Tom Lane, otherwise known as Ginger Monkey is an independent graphic designer & lettering artist. I ask him to participate to this year letterpress calendar but he was too busy ! I hope to have him next year... But the way, the normal edition of the calendar is still available here.

Some years ago, I work with a printer who has a nice type poster in his office. I see on the bottom it was "created by Colophon". I check what Colophon is, and found about this little museum run by passionates in a small village in France... I have to visit it ! And I shoot these pictures... They stay in my hard drives since then. I saw todayonly they launch a crowdfunding as they need help to continue the project ! They get what they ask for but I know that more is always better to support the makers ! So, I think it is time to share them !

Check Colophon support page here.

I have been more than busy over the last 2 weeks, finishing and sending the calendars and... sign up for a new studio ! So the Mr Cup studio will be a reality soon, in my new home town of Arles ! For the calendars, most of the orders are done... last one will be sent before new year ! I have very few copies left of the copper edition so it must be sold out before the end of the week... it is now or never ! 
 
Tonight I want to share this great project but Thibault Daumain which is, as the calendar, something done by passion ! I had the pleasure to taste it as Thibault kindly sent me a bottle, and it is perfect combination of great concept, packaging & product ! You can get a bootle at leonmarcel.com
