THE CALENDAR IS NO LONGER ON SALE THIS YEAR. THANK YOU FOR THE TERRIFIC INTEREST WE HAVE HAD. IT WILL BE AVAILABLE IN 2018 ALONG WITH OTHER ITEMS STEPHEN AND I ARE WORKING ON.
The Celestial Archive Advent calendar follows the format of a Advent calendar with 24 numbered doors, but the images are a celebration of the celestial rather than religious or other typical yuletide imagery. It is a collection of pre space age images of the heavens from varied iconographic traditions.
The calendar is just over 30 c.m x 30 c.m. (just under 12 x 12 inches) in size and with packing weighs 0.1kg (or almost 3.5 ounces). The cover is printed in 4 colors on heavy card stock, with a gold ink over print.
The windows in the cover open to reveal celestial images printed on thin paper, which, held up to the light, produce something like a stained glass window effect.
The cover and window images are researched by Stephen Ellcock, who many know and follow on Facebook (and Instagram) for his page, which is as an oasis of extremely well curated, interesting, sometimes esoteric, but always sublime imagery. The calendar is designed and published by the American based photographer Hugh Hales-Tooke who has worked for the designer Paul Smith as well as many print publications in the USA and Europe.
The calendar is delivered shrink wrapped against cardboard and comes in a specially designed envelope.
