So the Kickstarter for the calendar is now ended and we reach the 170% target which means we can print the box set ! It would be amazing, I am so impatient ! Studio Pression send me this picture of the prototype he made on real Oak engraved wood with the design of Kevin Cantrel on the box set/stander ! It is now available in the shop here.
Here come designs by Radim Malinic Brand Nu and Jeff Millotte who work with me at the Mr Cup Studio ! Only 2 missing pages included... mine !

The idea was to launch the new shop but... it is not ready yet ! You can preorder the normal or the deluxe edition in the shop. It should be ready around December 10th and sent following ordering dates, so the sooner, the better...

Here it comes, the last week of the letterpress calendar kickstarter has started ! It is already a huge success as we reach the third target of 150% ! The calendar will now come in a box set which unfolds to be a stander for it !
What about improving it a little more with printing this box set ? It could feature the nice logo created by Kevin Cantrell, and information about the designers ! For that, we need to reach the 170% goal !

Get your calendar now !

For all those asked : yes, these improvements will be made on all the issues, Deluxe and Normal ! Talking about the Deluxe edition, Studio pression shoot a video on the wood cover engraving test and it is hypnotic ! Video is accelerated 8 times !

The calendar is now funded at 145% and it will help to improve it ! Running a Kickstarter is really an adventure and I thank you for being part of it ! We reach the second target and the pages of the calendar will be duplexed. Here come more details on the next goals :
So the next goal is to do a box set that will unfold to be a stander for the calendar ! Studio Pression already prototypes it and you can see a video on the project page here !
At the same time, designers continue to work on the project, at the begining of this article is  Renaud Orange design (he designs last year front cover). And I am very pleased that Radim Malinic (Brand Nu) climb on the bandwagon. Here comes his first idea (not finished yet !).
