2014 Datebooks are hot off the press!

These datebooks were printed from modular metal type called Alpha-Blox and a sans-serif called News Gothic. With a weekly layout, each page was printed four times- quite a feat for a treadle-powered Pearl Press!

The binding is hand-dyed linen thread and hand-sewn in the coptic style. This produces an interesting braid pattern on the bound edge of the book.

Finished datebooks are available on my etsy shop and at the Easton Farmers’ Market November 9th and 23rd.
