The Datebook Project- a collaboration between Blackbird Letterpress and Gutwrench Press


Almost a year ago, Hope from Gutwrench Press and Kathryn of Blackbird Letterpress had a conversation about the perfect datebook. They both used them. Hope always made her own and Kathryn would buy one but used it for weeks at a time and then did not for a couple of weeks. At the end of the year, Kathryn always had a datebook that was half filled but no longer useable. So together they decided to design their own version of the perfect datebook, letterpress printed, of course. They collected vintage book covers over the past few months, printed the pages, cut, folded and coptic bound them together. And today they are introducing them to us!  Check them out here.

Nice! I'm the same way, still looking for the perfect planner. Maybe I should give these a try.

These are just perfect! So fed up with high street planners - 2012 will see me with a unique one off!
