Twenty fifteen deserves a letterpress calendar from Birds of a Feather
Birds of a Feather are makers of bespoke letterpress loveliness right here on the Gold Coast.
If the thought of beautifully pressed cotton paper adorned with gorgeous tactile designs makes you want to sigh and gaze off wistfully into the distance, prepare yourself for Birds of a Feather’s 2015 letterpress calendar.
Twelve glorious months of hand-illustrated mixed tile patterns inspired by the exotic colours and textures of far away places, the calendar makes recording your various meetings and appointments the old fashioned way an absolute pleasure. The neat little design is complete with a handmade recycled cypress timber display block. This is true paper appreciation.
The brawn behind this letterpressed delight is an antique Heidelberg GT platen windmill press. This old-timer creates every single print individually. It’s a time consuming and labour intensive process but the result is something that is truly one-of-a-kind. Every piece is made with love and that is something pretty special in today’s digital age of high-speed laser printers.
Birds of a Feather is a boutique design studio on the Gold Coast that handmakes a range of wedding and event invitations as well as custom prints and business cards. The letterpress calendar as well as other miscellaneous niceties are available online.
