12 Musketeers, a collaboration between Paperreka Stationery Design and 11 other talented designers, have returned for a second year to create their 2014 letterpress calendar that “embraces all warriors, historical time periods and cross sections of cultures.” Each month showcases an original illustration by one of the 12 battle-trained designers who graduated from the school of advertising art in Dayton, Ohio. The 2014 letterpress calendar is available to purchase online from 12 Musketeers. Filmmaker Tyler Morris also created a fascinating promotional video that gives a cinematic feel for this year’s badass calendar.
Here is a list of the featured designers and the month they illustrated:
Emily Webb (January), Shelby White (February), Brian Braden (March), Pat Vincent (April), Eric Kemp (May), Trace Palmatier (June), Candy Niemeyer (July), Anthony Wartinger (August), Reka Juhasz (September), Clare Pluckhorn (October), Ethan Muller (November), and Matt Gregg (December)
The ruthless warriors, the heroes, the rise and fall of great empires. You and I are these warriors and heroes. We all start somewhere with an idea of how our year will unfold, how our days will be spent, how our seasons will bring new adventures. No fight is easy or comes without sacrifices. We can plan and prepare, but we also have to be quick on our feet to navigate in stealth mode in the dark. This is your battle, your journey, your chance to fight for and honor what you believe in. Make the best of it.
