In a few days we will have a giveaway in our studio, but if you can't come and take your own copy of the Calendarbook 2013, you can partecipate here on the blog or by sharing the post on facebook. Two winners will be selected separately, one from the blog and one from FB, on February 11th. I'd like to hear your opinion on our annual project. This Calendarbook is Number 14 in our collection! It is a collaboration with my old time friend Silvana Amato from Rome, Swiss type designer Sibylle Hagmann that kindly donated Cholla and Brooklyn based illustrator Steven Guarnaccia. We feel very lucky to have been working with such talents! In the photos you can see bits of the full project, from the very beginning, until completion. The Calendarbook is now hanging from the pipe in front of the studio window. I designed the mobile by cutting circles of paper out of my tea glass cup and decided to use the Wrapped Cotton in the design, even before the mobile came into shape. The same for the Merchant and Mills pins, we used for the glassine packaging closure. Cholla and The Men diving into Time by Gurnaccia completes the great layout design by Silvana. A true collaborative work! the Calendarbook is a limited edition, I'm sorry, not available for sale, but it is something we enjoy working on year, after year, for our long distance project. A labor of love, that we share with our clients, colleagues, designers and new contacts, every year. The Calendarbook, usually travels back to the U.S. in my suitcase, after it was offset printed on Fedrigoni Paper and dye cut in Rome by Futura Grafica. Assembled in our studio, completely by hand by Hillary Deane. I hope you will enjoy it too and good luck for the giveaway! Come to visit us this Saturday, from 11 to 4 and meet us all, if you can!
