Together with the Spanish photographer Susanna Sáez, we designed a Galgo Calendar for the coming year. It is going to be printed within the next days. Because it is a premiere for us (and we really do not know how good the quality of the print will be), we limited the edition to 25 exemplars. The price will be about 15 Euro (net cost price). Our motto is: "who comes first, meals first", so if you are interested, please do not hesitate to send us an Email! But, please note: we cannot send the calendars by mail (too much effort). Instead of that, we are going to bring them along to the Special Galgo Exhibition in Issum.
