Beija-Flor's 2019 calendar is a beautiful celebration of Portugal and illustration! Each month of this lovingly created hanging wall calendar features an original drawing and a Portuguese saying referring to the month. Each month is perforated so you have a set of prints at the end of the year. In the meantime though, the calendar is held together with screws through wood slats (reusable) and bookended with luxurious letterpress covers printed. Read more about the creative process of the calendar on Beija-Flor's blog.
