Perennial is a limited edition collaborative calendar between Brown Parcel Press and a Brooklyn florist, Sarah Ryhanen of Saipua. The calendar is a collection of six letterpress prints containing carefully detailed illustrations and naturally inspired colors from Saipua's seasonal arrangements. From hydrangeas, ranunculus, and poppies to feathers, and even tomatoes each arrangement is a great testament to the changing seasons. Our goal in making Perennial was to produce a calendar that could function as art in someone's home long after the calendar year is over, so we love that each print can stay up in your home for many more years to come.
- Each Print Meaures 8" x 10"
- 100% Cotton Paper (tree free!)
- We ran each calendar through the press 26 times!

MORE ON THE COLLABORATION:
I've always thought that surprising someone by giving them flowers is such a tender and sweet way of telling them you love them. Flowers are like perfect sculptures of nature's fleeting beauty. I regularly look at other artists and makers for inspiration and florists are no exception-- with their keen eye for composition, color, texture and scale. So, I began the year wondering if there was a way if Brown Parcel could make a print of a flower arrangement that would do it justice with all of its grace, character, and gorgeous detail. I knew that a print couldn't replace the actual flowers, but they could complement them and be a "time proof" reflection of an arrangement's beauty that is both more tactile and hand worked than a photograph.
Sarah Ryhanen of Saipua was such a natural choice for the collaboration. I've been a fan of her work since 2008 when I discovered her while living in Brooklyn, and I often find myself gasping out loud at the gorgeousness of her work. I love that her arrangements often have a sense of drama to them, but not without a sense of humor. She was so gracious throughout the whole process, and honestly the project feels like a dream come true.
