In an effort to fulfill an itch to create something beautiful by hand, 10 of my classmates and I collaborated on this calendar. Each person designed a month, and the group gathered in the letterpress studio on campus to crank out 300 copies over a weekend.

Each calendar page is approximately 4.75 inches wide by 5 inches high, and fits into CD sized plastic cases. The artwork was converted into polymer plates and we hand mixed all the ink colors.

[Calendar designed by NCSU graduate students: Tania Allen, Cady Bean-Smith, Sidney Fritts, Tony Fugolo, Marty Lane, Kelly Murdoch-Kitt, Caroline Maxcy Prietz, Alberto Rigau, Rebecca Tegtmeyer, Lauren Waugh, and Liese Zahabi]
