Letterpress calendar by www.mr-cup.com
 
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 !).

By Conrad Garner : The 2017 season marks the Toronto Maple Leafs Centennial Season this year. I had the absolute privilege and honor of being asked to illustrate and create the artwork for the entire 2017 centennial season ticket package, tickets and cover. It is the largest project I have done to date with over 250 sketches and almost 60 finished pieces.

Less than a week since the launch of the 2017 letterpress calendar Kickstarter and almost 50% funded ! You are awesome ! It gives so much motivation for next step and for creating more beautiful objects ! Thanks for your order and now I need you to spread the word about the project, to share it on social media to tell your friends and followers.
 
Such a great feeling to start receiving the design for the pages ! Here come the first one by Eric Kass, Scott Biersack and Tomasz Biernat who already participate for last year edition. I am also pleased to collaborate with Tom Ludd for the first time, who creates a great facebook group called "the designer's league".

This year edition will be printed on color papers, in dark on light paper for the first 6 months, and in light on dark paper for the other ones. The great thing about color papers is that the spines will be in colors too !
