Some updates on the Letterpress "Creative manifesto" calendar. El Calotipo told me the first months are printed, and they send me these pictures... the spanish sunlight help to see the relief !!! There are only 20 copies left of the deluxe edition (with multicolor painted edges), so I guess they will be sold out before the end of the pre-sale phase. You also can pre-order the normal version.

Pre-order the 2014 Letterpress calendar and get free eBooks

A little reminder that the  2014 Letterpress calendar, is available on pre-sale. I figure out few people only read the latest blog posts ! The other day, someone was really suprised when I told him I have an online shop, after saying he visits the blog every day ! So, I prefer to repeat myself ! 
 
The printing has now started and I will share first images as soon as possible. Half of the "deluxe edition" are now sold, and I am very please with this. Some people ask what was "deluxe" on the deluxe edition, as you can see each card of the calendar has it's own color, and has the paper is very heavy (700 gm), the edges will be painted on the same color. The idea is to have a kind of edges rainbow at the end ! You also can get the normal edition, final calendar should be ready to be send early november.
 
Every order done during the pre-sale stage will get a special extra item from my archives, AND you will also have the 2 first issues of THREE ebook for free ! As Georges Clooney would said "What else" !

Here is the 2014 Letterpress calendar, entitled "The creative manifesto (For all those who dream of change or just want to enjoy life)." I'm not the author of all these inspirations sentences, but I wanted the group them to make a "manifesto" of my state of mind. Because creativity is my engine, and I want to share it.
 
Limited to 500 copies, the calendar it is composed of 13 cards printed on 700g color paper plane white frost. Each of the 20x14 cm card has its own color, referring to the season.
100 copies of the calendar are a "deluxe edition" and will come with painting edges, each one with a different color. This would be amazing !
 
This is a pre-sale, you can order the deluxe or normal edition, final calendar should be ready to be send early november. Every order done during the pre-sale stage will get a special extra item.

This is El calotipo, met this summer Zaragaosa which handles printing. We started the test prints to see the relief and quality of a large printing surface. The 700g paper is just incredible. Here are some pictures to make your mouth water!

Helvetica wood words

It was exactly one year ago today that we arrived in Bali to move there for several months. This was the beginning of an amazing creative adventure. I started the project "wood letters" a few weeks before, during our first visit to the country, and I could see the letters on my return. There I developed a 3td collection (wood + recycled metal) in collaboration with "Mr. Eka", drinking super sweet "bali kopi" !
 
Today, there are a few letters left, but it is difficult to compose words as it was the case when the whole alphabets werre available. If you are like me, I never liked (and so one been good) at playing Scrabble, so it is hard for me to compose words when some letters are missing ... Seeing the success of wood blocks last week (sold out in less than 24 hours) I now offer you words...
 

COLLECTION 3 : Wood + recycled metal

Collection 2 : raw suar wood

 
It also remains the numbers and I wanted to use them to decorate my new office. And frankly, it does great ! The Raw wood letters are really light and are easy to fix with some home decoration glue.
