Bloomfield's Birds - a 2014 linocut letterpress calendar

2014: Bloomfield's Birds

It's been a while since either of us have had time to post anything 'fun' - we had a super-busy run up to Christmas with orders and special commissions aplenty. Having taken breath, we're now ready to tackle 2014....

First up, a little show off of the calendar I produced for my family and friends at Christmas, in an edition of 25. After seeing something similar Richard Lawrence (letterpress printer extraordinaire) had put together, I got in touch and he agreed to do the technical setting and printing, if I provided the linocuts.  This meant i got to do the 'creative' bit without worrying about dirty finger prints and all those other pesky details.

The theme was birds (isn't it always.....)

2014: Bloomfield's Birds (January)

I was really pleased with the final results and it's been nice to see my birds hanging in various kitchens over the last few weeks.

A big thank you to Richard too. If you're interested in his services you can find him here.
