Letterpress Perpetual Calendar by Familia Plómez


Production Method

Familia Plómez

I’m loving this delightful and resourceful Spanish perpetual calendar. Each of the printed components are hand printed with wood and lead type with Familia Plómez’s Minerva Drimp, which I believe is their small printing press. A piece like this could add some much needed routine and charm to an otherwise dreary workspace.

Project Description

Elegant perpetual calendar that will give a touch of distinction and personality to even the the most depressing of environments.

Provided with movable parts for bilingual tens, units, months and days of the week. They skillfully fit in a traditional and sturdy napkin dispenser, which serves both as a container and as an amazing aesthetic counterpoint.

Production Lesson(s)

Maybe the next time we'll set everything in english or multilingual. Also, the base is an object that maybe only Spaniards can understand.”
