Brown Parcel Press is a small letterpress and design shop powered by four hands. Megan Fowler and her Breton mother, Gaelle Boling, run their studio together on a rural farm in Hancock County, Georgia. They are infinitely inspired by the growth, change, and life they see around them. With an emphasis on quality, touch, and the beautifully simple things in life (food, flowers, abundance, tactile beauty etc.) they produce marvelous paper goods that are simultaneously playful, smart and striking.
PLANT MORE SEEDS is a limited edition 2021 letterpress calendar inspired by life on the farm where the Megan and Gaelle live and work. Each year their studio creates a garden calendar. They like to think of it as a love letter to the shifting growth & beauty we all see outside. This year's garden desk calendar is meant to remind you of your own connection to the world around you-bringing your attention to the shifting growth and beauty both in nature and the everyday moments of life.
All 13 prints in PLANT MORE SEEDS have been run through the press by human hands a total of 42 times for each calendar! Brown Parcel Press is a small company, just three women, who make paper goods and this marks the 11th year that they’ve created a garden desk calendar. With 2020 knocking us all a little sideways they wanted to lean into the ideas that Margaret Mead's words bring up for us: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." Each month in our 2021 calendar features an illustration tied to a small prompt that they hope will serve as reminders of reflection and action: to Plant More Seeds in our lives and in the lives of those in our community— to Nurture Growth Inside & Out. Hold on to these words and these prints on both the light and dark days and know that it’s all a part of the cycle of our seasons and our lives.
