ALL SOLD OUT - THANK YOU!
Having discussed a variety of ideas over the past 18 months with our esteemed co-founder Sureshot La Rock, we decided to put together a 2014 calendar showing off some of the incredible flyers that he’s collected over the years.
While Sureshot works out a plan for a full book project, we figured that this would be a nice teaser and would give an idea of what’s sitting in his collection. The amount of incredible pieces he has is genuinely mindblowing and it took weeks to finally decide on the flyers shown in this calendar.
Each month has a montage illustration of flyers that relate to that particular month. It might be almost 2014 now, but look carefully and you’ll see portions of flyers from the ’70s and ‘80s hiding in the background. Each page has a background montage and a main piece lovingly selected by Sureshot.
We’ve included a variety of public holiday dates and other days of note throughout the year, just so you know when to buy your Easter eggs.
To test the water this first time around, we’ve printed up a short run of 65 calendars: 15 not-for-sale promos and 50 hand-numbered final prints for retail. These will not be reprinted and you won’t suddenly see these cropping up in stores. There are only 50 available and they are exclusive to you guys – if there are still any left at the end of the week, they’ll get mentioned in our next newsletter (due to go out very shortly).
We bumped up the production spec on these to match the quality of the content:
A3 size (297mm x 420mm)
13 leaves (1 cover and 12 pages)
Full CMYK colour print
200gsm silk paper
500 micron card backing board
White spiral binding, with hook.
Matt laminate cover
Packaged in a clear plastic sleeve
Sent out in an A3 envelope (not rolled)
The price is £18.99 + £6.10 postage and packing (UK)/£12.99 (rest of the world). All orders will be sent recorded/registered delivery (we need to sell 37 copies to break even: any profits go into the next DWG project).
We’re in the Christmas post season now, but we’ll do our best to get them out to you ASAP, starting tomorrow!
