I'm working on the final assembling of the Calendarbooks by Edizioni Almenodue. Schools are closed today, so Nada` is kindly helping me to punch holes and putting eyelets on the strips of paper. As every year, Silvana and I design the self-promotional piece in the fall, it gets offset printed the last week of December in Rome and copies of the Calendarbooks comes back to the US in my suitcase. Sorry if the calendar is always a present closer to valentine's day, rather than the end of the year, but the best wishes for 2012 have the same good intentions. The design, this year, is particularly close to me, growing up with my mother being a seamstress and remembering the measuring tape always on her shoulder. I will slowly reveal the calendar in the next days, but I like to keep it as a surprise for the ones that will have the time to stop by the studio next Saturday from 1 to 5 and pick up their copy. Instead of only sending the calendars via mail and a giveaway online, this year, I thought to have a small get together at the studio, to bare the cold and to meet some of you in person. If you have time and you live in the Boston area, please come by and say hello! Otherwise, leave a comment on the blog, facebook or both, by Monday the 23rd and I will announce a winner the following day. Thank you everyone for your precious support, I wish you could all come to visit! everyone is invited, bring a friend!
