I am happy to said the calendars are now finish and in boxes, probably in a truck between Zaragoza and my home. It tooks much time than we plan, but this is all handmade by the amazing El Calotipo team and they have done an amazing job ! I get an email the other day telling me "I am sad it is sold out"... but it is not ! Only the Deluxe edition with colors edges is sold out, but you still can order the "normal edition" which came with white edges here. And it looks like this :

New design books in the shop

posted in Mr CUP News | Print | Design  at 11.25 PM from Home ! Maruéjols Les Gardons (near Alès / Nîmes / Uzès) / France
As I write when I introduce design books in the shop, founding a design book, is, for me, an experience... (all books in fact)... I love to found one in a store, but it is a feeling harder to get when I try to buy books online based on the cover only ! I would love to do real books for my own ebooks but it will be next year, I hope. So, I want, instead to only share books I like, gave you access to the ones I really like and see them with my eyes, with my pictures ! I just put some new books in the shop. Prefect for your designer boy friend for christmas !!!

Bibliodyssey - Amazing Archival images

Mr Cup Design Books selection : Bibliodyssey www.mr-cup.com
 If you are fascinated by old illustrations from the early 1900's, this book is for you... BibliOdyssey's mission blog has been to diligently trawl the dustier corners of the Internet and retrieve these materials for our attention. Thanks to the daily efforts of this singular blog, a myriad of long-forgotten imagery has now re-surfaced, from eighteenth-century anatomical and architectural drawing to occult and alchemical engravings and proto-Surrealist depictions of the horrors of industrialization (for example, the half-plant, half-people illustrations of J.J. Grandville).
