Coming Soon! The St. Honore: Patron Saint of Bakers print

Posted February 7, 2018

Honore, Bishop of Amiens, is the patron saint of bakers (as well as confectioners, bakers of altar bread, candle-makers, florists, flour merchants, corn chandlers, oil refiners, and pastry chefs). All religious aspects aside, he was a humble man who did good things and is now eternally associated with bread and pastry.

Inspired in equal parts by the tale of Honore and threats from my friend the pastry chef to cut off my weekly supply of freshly baked sweets, I have produced what I think is a lovely print honoring St. Honore.

The Kickstarter-exclusive edition of the print will be released on Feb. 13th, 2018. This Kickstarter edition is your only opportunity to get the wax-sealed and 24k gilded edition of the print! Seriously, these bespoke prints will never again be produced once the Kickstarter project's 30 days have run their course.
