We are beyond thrilled on this fantastic feedsack friday to announce our 2011 Calendar project. A collaboration between Allison of BirdDog Press and Theresa of WonderBound Press. This calendar features woodcuts of heritage breed farm animals, a showcase of heirloom seeds and patterns inspired by vintage feedsacks cultivating 12 beautiful scenes to see you through 2011. The calendar was designed with the intent of paying respect to the current homesteading movement, permaculture and bringing awareness to the healthy diversity that is critical for saving American farms today. Each month will bring to life a combination of function and beauty – a month of days, the phases of the moon, a heritage breed, an heirloom crop, a feedsack inspired pattern – handprinted on an antique letterpress on sustainable bamboo paper. With each turn of the page, the illustration becomes a frame-worthy 5x7 letterpress print to keep.
The calendars will be $40 and will be ready by December 1st. Due to the high interest in this work, we will gladly take pre-orders. Contact us for more information or go HERE to pre-order online.
