This calendar is a must for all lovers of type and letter forms, and for designers, artists and anyone who enjoys a sense of play. Each month of the year 2000 is illustrated with a bird, letterpress printed from assorted wood type letters and punctuation. Each page is printed in a number of colours, often involving as many as seven print runs, to achieve the finished design.
From a Parrot for January to a Penguin for December, and with each month a unique artist's print, this is a Year 2000 calendar not to be missed!
