There is an intrinsic beauty in letterpress paper ... the craftsmanship and hand-made nature ... the fact that no two are exactly alike. In this digital age of iPhones and computer printers, letterpress paper is eye candy.
I recently came across Ilee Paper and their 2011 letterpress and silkscreen calendar. This calendar includes 12 monthly cards with creative and original artwork. January is inspired by the Chinese Zodiac, 2011 is the year of rabbit ... it was the rabbit that sold me! March features a blind embossed rooster. For October the moon in the design is silk screened with non-toxic glow in the dark ink. November has the most beautiful rendering of vegetables. An of course there is April showers brings May flowers. This 2011 calendar will definitely bring eye candy to my desk in 2011. ENJOY!
