Last week I received this gorgeous Limited Edition A1 calendar designed by Mash Creative. The posters are printed 2 colour litho on 170gsm cyclus offset with a 60% cyan shiner to achieve an extra rich black. Each poster
is hand numbered and signed by the designer. Only 100 were printed and you can purchase one exclusively from Counter Objects.
Dan Reisinger is an Israeli graphic designer who’s work includes posters, calendars, logos, corporate and environmental day. He’s probably most known for his work for EL AL Airlines, which includes a beautiful series of destination posters that were designed from 1968-72.
I love his style and his work is probably the only example I’ve ever seen of good design that uses Hebrew letters.
Reisinger also designed this lovely perpetual calendar for MoMA in 1987.
To celebrate the launch of the new site, and my 1000 post which will happen any day now, the Limited Edition 2010 Letterpress Calendar is on sale for only $30. There are only a little over 25 calendars left so grab one before they’re all gone.
The calendar measures 16.5″ x 23.5″ (A2) and is printed on Crane Lettra Fluorescent White 110# (300gsm) paper that is specially developed for letterpress printing.
Each print is numbered and signed.
I have a thing for well-designed calendars and letterpress printing, so this year I tried to combine the two into a single project.
Now available to order is this Limited Edition 2010 Letterpress Calendar. The print features a calendar with the year printed in English, Italian, French and German. The 2010, the days of the week, and the edition number line are all printed blind, and of course, the type is set in Helvetica. Each print is numbered and signed.
The size of the calendar is 16.5″ x 23.5″ (A2) and printed on Crane Lettra Fluorescent White 110# (300gsm) paper, which is specially made for letterpress. The quality of the paper is superb and gives the print an extra special feel to it.
The printing was done by the fabulous Coeur Noir of Brooklyn, NY. I used these guys for my son’s baptism invites and they also printed all the Helvetica Film posters, as well as the Objectified poster. They simply rock.
If you’re looking for an affordable framing option, I recommend picking up a good-looking, but inexpensive, IKEA Ribba Frame (19.75″ x 27.5″) and have a custom matte cut to fit it. This setup will run you less than $50.
It’s that time of the year again and the uber-talented David Bennett has released his mouth-watering 2010 calendar poster. The poster is set in Europa Grotesk and printed one color on a 80gsm stock. I just received one in the mail and it’s stunning in person. If you ask him nice enough he might send you a copy.
