seesaw: 2011 letterpress calendar.







We're so excited to finally share our 2011 letterpress calendar! This year, we were inspired by vintage textiles, geometric shapes, and the beautiful imperfections of hand-drawn illustration.

The calendar was foil stamped in metallic gold and then letterpress printed in a warm grey. Full size, the calendar measures 5x10" and features a series of six hand-drawn illustrations, with two months per page. Each sheet is perforated to 5x7" so it can be framed or used as a postcard after its lifespan as a calendar is over. Buy it for $32 here.

Huge thanks to Grace for posting it on Design*Sponge this morning!
