The 2016 Short Story Advent Calendar

So, we’re going to keep making these sets, for the chapbook connoisseurs out there.

Each year I get to reinvent the package, finding new ways to mirror the functionality of popping open flaps on an advent calendar to find the unexpected underneath.

Our new printing partner-in-crime is Hemlock, based in British Columbia. They printed the box on a Heidelberg XL106 UV six colour press, and watching this happen one early rainy morning in Burnaby was a proud moment.

Another big development in 2016 was that I figured out how to make a mini animation on the internet. So now you can following along on Instagram as we reveal a new story each day in December.

The 2017 edition will launch in early October.
