Only Four Days Remain!

Dearest Grandiloquent Friends,

I hope you have all enjoyed a delightful weekend. We've been working hard to put the finishing touches on the wall calendar, with a few breaks to savor the fleeting Autumnal beauty.

The time has flown by...it's hard to believe that only four days remain in this year's Kickstarter campaign! We would love to meet the stretch goal and be able to produce bookmarks for you. Please do share the campaign love far and wide...every share helps us get there!

Grandiloquent Word of the Day 2020 Wall Calendar Kickstarter Campaign

We can hardly wait to see the calendars and bookplates (and hopefully bookmarks!) come off the printing presses, and start sending them to their new homes with our wonderful backers!

Wishing you a splendid week ahead,

Jason T. Ott, Grandiloquent Word of the Day

Stretch Goal Added!
3 months ago – Mon, Oct 28, 2019 at 03:12:33 AM

As promised, we have added our first stretch goal of the campaign...'tis a beauty, to be sure! 

Grandloquent Word of the Day Bookmark

If total pledges reach $20,000, all backers who have pledged for any of the reward tiers with printed calendars will also receive one Grandiloquent Bookmark!

This stylish double-sided bookmark will be printed on high-quality, sturdy stock, and adorned with a silky cord tassel. A tribute to your literary lifestyle, it shall be a boon companion to mark your favorite passages and save your library from a dog-eared fate.

We would love to be able to include one of these with your rewards. Please share the campaign love far and wide - every new pledge puts us one step closer to reaching the stretch goal!

Dearest Grandiloquent Friends,

I hope this update finds you enjoying a fine October weekend. 'Tis my favorite season - Halloween! I firmly believe that Halloween deserves an entire season and not just a day.

I wanted to share a preview of the October artwork for our 2020 Wall Calendar - another glorious illustration by the revered Walter Crane, with an appropriately spooky air:
