South African Letterpress Artist’s Almanac 2015

Radio

 

Essie Letterpress is a design and print studio run by Ben and Vanessa Grib; two people in love with colour, pattern and texture. Each year they produce a showcase of some of the best South African illustration talent in a beautiful letterpress calendar which has become something we eagerly look forward to seeing. The 2015 edition of their Artist’s Almanac has just been released featuring an eclectic selection of artists to take you through the year ahead. The brief was to illustrate a month of the year according to what that time of year means to each artist. The results range from a cityscape to an important moment in history, and include ample inspiration from the seasons of the Southern Hemisphere.

 

The featured artists include Mieke van der Merwe, Inus Pretorius, Jaco Haasbroek, Elise Wessels, Ben Johnston, Robyn Mitchell, Dylan Jones, Pearly Yon, Ian Jepson, Pola Maneli and Isaac Kosmides. The cover was created by design studio Radio.
