As I work on the next edition of the letterpress calendar I am exploring paper and printing technique. I wanted to use holographic foil printing but I guess the design of the cover won't look right with it. So we are more on a gold foil, but nothing is finalized yet. If you want to be sure to update on the launch of the calendar, subscribe to the newsletter here. This week I also update the www.mr-cup.com page that brings you to my 3 websites now: this blog for inspiration now at www.mrcup-blog.com, my work is now at www.mrcup-studio.com and the shop at www.mrcup-shop.com. It was important to separate the blog from my work.
 
Also, October will be crazy with Adobe Max coming in Las Vegas where I will be happy to attend invited by the Adobe France team ! This is amazing! I will also come back to Paris to visit some studios in early October and in Madrid at the end to do a talk! In the middle of that, we work on the new blog design! I will sleep after Christmas! 
 
Here comes a nice CD cover which uses the holographic foil printing for all these graphics elements by Hong Kong studio Fundamental. Enjoy.

Last week I was back in Paris for an Adobe special event sharing about Movies and creativity! If you do not follow Adobe, they just launch a very interesting contest about creative tools you can see here.
 
Being in Paris was the opportunity to visit my friend Camille Gabarra, who wants me to show their renovated studio! And it worth it! The place is amazing and you do not feel like being in Paris with their plants and trees on the front. Camille and his partner in crime, Tugdual, share my passion for handcrafted and beautiful printed items. A pleasure to see their latest creations.

Louis Jou printing workshop in Les Baux de Provence

2 years ago, my friend Client Harvey visit me in France and we do a short type tour... We plan to organize more but never found the time to... When we visit the beautiful village of Les Baux de Provence we see a printing museum and workshop which was closed. It was the "Louis Jou" workshop, but have no more info... I now live at 15' drive from this village and some weeks ago, I heard the workshop will be open for a weekend ! Louis Jou was a printer doing engraving and typography in this place until his death in 1968. An association exists to present his legacy but they miss money to do it well. I took these pictures there...
