So, we begin our celebration of Canada150 with an event filled with controversy, intrigue and humble Canadian pride. January features an image of Canada’s greatest aeronautical achievement – the CF-105 jet fighter, or Avro Arrow as it was known. The Arrow was a supersonic jet interceptor developed by A.V. Roe of Canada. Faster and more advanced than any other intercept aircraft, the Arrow was designed to carry air-to-air nuclear-tipped missiles used to destroy Soviet bomb attacks over the Canadian North.

Today is Earth Day, a celebration of how much we love this little blue planet, third from the sun. We try every day to make small choices in an effort to lighten our burden on the planet, and it can be really difficult at times to find ways to be environmentally friendly in an inherently environmentally unfriendly industry. A little while ago we were asked to contribute to a post by Boxcar Press about some of our green practices we employ around our shop.

First of all, what’s a wayzgoose? It’s a traditional gathering of printers, their apprentices and workers to celebrate the end of the summer printing season. You can learn more about it here. Every year, on the last Saturday in April, printers, book binders, paper makers and other book artists gather at the Grimsby Public Art Gallery to honour this tradition.

Love is blind – literally, the word “love” is blind debossed on this Valentine’s Day card. We hand-set, hand-inked and hand-printed this with wood type and a wood heart... how sad, to have a heart of wood. Brighten the day of a loved one with this one of a kind letterpressed card. We only printed a handful of these to commemorate this day d’amore. Don’t be fooled, we’re not suggesting you celebrate blind love!

We usually sell our prints and artwork unframed, in a protective sleeve. That way, the art lover who bought the piece can have it framed in a way that best suits their design aesthetic. But sometimes people like the ease and convenience of buying a piece of artwork already framed. So we decided to frame ourselves and started offering art lovers the choice of purchasing a selection of our most popular prints framed or unframed.
