Work in progress: wood spool + calligraphy + letterpress

I'm working on a new product to launch for the holidays and it is something I had in mind for a long time. If you have been following our studio's projects for a while, you might remember the Calendarbook, with the measuring tape, designed in collaboration with Silvana Amato, under our imprint of Edizioni Almenodue. This project is the sequel of the same wood spool wrapped with paper. A few weeks ago I dreamed about the little spool, wrapped in calligraphy and I decided it was time to make it happen! I asked dear friend Susy to submit some of her beautiful calligraphy, and these are the first few steps of the design process, after many hours spent on InDesign for the overall layout, size and dimensions. Stay tuned for updates on the letterpress printing with Albertine Press, next week. I'm very excited about this new product and can't wait to move on to the next step and hopefully everything will be ready for the final assembling, soon. And last, I love taking photos with the new camera Canon EOS with a macro lens. It makes a world of different to take products shooting, but much to learn!
