2017 Taproot Calendar
We are so thrilled to offer you this 2017 illustrated 12 month wall calendar featuring the work of artist Jessica Roux (our 2016 Taproot cover artist), including eight never-before-seen illustrations.
"Five years ago, we launched our first issue of Taproot Magazine with the dream of creating an independently-published, advertising-free journal that celebrated place, and nurtured within us all, a sense of home and community. We aimed to seek out the stories that connect us – the stories of the makers, doers and dreamers in our world. We’ve shared those stories through the personal narrative, poetry, photography, recipes and crafts in our pages. Woven around and into these stories has been the art that has graced each story. And each year, we have chosen an artist to create our magazine covers, a piece that embodies all the elements of life that Taproot and our readers hold dear – the natural world, handwork, home and hearth, and imagination and connection. Jessica Roux has done all of that and more this year as she has inspired curiosity and wonder, inspiration and beauty, into each of her timeless cover illustrations. Meticulous in detail, each piece invites us to pay attention, to look closer, to dig deeper into her art….and the natural wonder of our world. We are honored to share those illustrations—plus eight more that she created—here with you in this 2017 calendar. Surely it will inspire even more exploration and appreciation in your next 365 days."
