FLOWERS - GARDENS
HORTICULTURE AND BOTANY
The combination of hand-lettering and texts about
the garden can be an endless source of artistic expression.
Horticulture is defined as the cultivation of a garden,
the art or science of growing garden vegetables, fruits,
flowers, etc. Botany is the science of plants.
The term also refers to the plant life of a region.
Text material can be chosen from the writings of poets
and novelists, scientists (botanists, biologists, ecologists),
philosophers, historians, explorers and adventurers,
herbalists and environmentalists, etc.
Anything from flowers to fossils, medicinal herbs to
Aristotelian classifications may be a source of inspiration.
Illustration (e.g. botanical illustration or calligraphic
drawing with brush or pen) is welcome and may be a
good complement to calligraphy.
FORMAT: The format is 7" x 9" VERTICAL
with a maximum artwork area of 5" x 6-1/2".
The entire space need not be filled. Please indicate crop marks.
COLOR: The Calendar will be printed in black
on off-white paper. The cover will be printed in color.
SUBMITTING YOUR ARTWORK:
You have two options in submitting your artwork:
1. If you are submitting line art (calligraphy
only or calligraphy with line illustration), send
camera-ready art in the form of a high quality
positive photostat (or reverse photostat, if you wish your
writing to appear white against a black background),
in the proper size.
Mount your artwork on 11" x 14" bristol board
and position according to the diagram.
Indicate crop marks clearly. Cover your work with
a tracing paper flap for protection.
2. If your submission is more complicated, i.e.,
contains surprints, dropouts, tints, tone art, etc.,
send us a good quality Xerox copy of the artwork
with an explanation of the final form your piece
will take. (No rough drafts will be considered.)
If your artwork is accepted for publication,
we will then ask you to send us the appropriate
negative, film, screen, etc.
Original art CANNOT be accepted and artwork
cannot be returned.
NAME AND ADDRESS: Be sure to print your name,
address and telephone number on the BACK of each
piece of artwork submitted. Do not sign artwork.
COPYRIGHT: When choosing your passage(s),
be sure that you are not in violation of copyright laws.
If the book you are quoting from was published
more recently than 75 years ago, or if its copyright
was renewed more recently, or if you are uncertain
as to its status, write to the publisher for copyright
permission and/or information. Be sure to include
this permission with your calendar entry.
Please note that recently published translations of
books, or parts of books are also protected by
copyright laws and therefore must be released by
the publisher even if the original source is
hundreds of years old.

We suggest, however, that you do not pay the fee
until you receive notice that your piece has been accepted.

from the copyright holder. We strongly recommend that
you use material that is out of copyright or in the public domain.
PREPARATION OF CAMERA-READY ARTWORK
1. For line art, please send a high-quality photostat.
(A positive photostat is a direct, right reading, paper positive
reproduction of your original. A reverse photostat is a reverse
of your original - white letters, black background.)
The photostat must be the actual size that will be reproduced.
2. For surprints, please provide a one-piece
film negative with a position stat on the mechanical
for placement of the artwork. The negative
will be used for the printing process.

please provide a one-piece composite film negative
for printing and a position stat on the mechanical.
The dot or texture pattern must be on the negative.
4. For tone art (varying degrees of grayness, such
as pencil, wash, or continuous tone illustration,
brush lettering, etc.), please provide a screened
halftone negative for printing and a velox position stat
on the mechanical. For tone art combined with line art
(lettering), please provide a combination (line art and tone art)
film negative in the correct size for printing
and a position stat on the mechanical.
