Calendarbook giveaway party

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!

Hi does this mean we can buy online as well as callers to your shop?

Hello Michelle, the Calendarbook is a self-promotional piece that we design every year for our clients, but I love to do a giveaway to make it available to my readers, as well. You can enter your name also on my facebook page "studio carta" and have another chance to win a copy. Or stop by this coming Saturday at the studio, if you are in Boston. Everyone can pick up a free copy. I'm sorry, the Calendarbooks are not available for sale.

I'm a bookbinder from Chili. Thanks a friend, I discover your page some months ago and is always a big pleasure to visit it. Thanks for this softly elegance (I hope this phrase sounds in English good as in Spanish). Let me wish you all the best for next saturday and a wonderful 2012. Best regards.

I just saw the new photos of your collaborative calendar for 2012 - it's very nicely designed, and so original. And how lovely that the design pays quiet homage to childhood memories of your mother. Brava! (Brave, Almenodue!)
P.S. Your daughter did a great job with the photos too!

Che belle foto--mi piace molto il 'punto di vista'. Grazie per il 'giveaway' (come si dice in It.?).

PS about this time last year I sent some twine to you (you may remember our email exchange)...I hope it arrived safely and proved to be useful.
