Journal 2017 - Letterpress Journal


In 2016 we had this great idea to make the ultimate journal. Entirely hand printed and bound. With zigzag end leafs and hand sewn head bands. Made to last for centuries. We were even brave enough to put on title page that we will produce 500 of them…

Looking back, the only conclusion we can arrive at, is that, well, we were quite high on the grape juice from Cape: each journal required over three hours to make. With all the time consumed making them, there was no time for marketing, and well, we gave up after making just short of 100 of them. We still have some left, dinosaurs from the epoch of Great Excitement. Never to be repeated at this price.
