2010 Calendar Round-Up, Part 3

It’s finally here!  The final mega-installment of my 2010 calendar round-up has arrived, although I’ll continue to post some calendars individually as they are released over the next few weeks.  This installment ended up being pretty heavy on illustration, and I made sure to include some calendars with writing space in response to some of the feedback on earlier posts.  Enjoy!

So first up, an eco-friendly screen printed tear-away calendar from one of my favorite design duos — Two Trick Pony:

This letterpress calendar from Pikku was one of my favorite items from the NSS in May for its clean lines and modern, minimalist design — and it’s beautifully mounted on a screen printed wood plank:

2010 Calendar Round-Up, Part 2

Hi everyone!  I've been a busy bee the past few days compiling even more fantastic 2010 calendars to share with you.  So once again, you might want to settle in, get comfortable, and prepare yourself for more calendar goodies!  

First up, Sarah from Parrott Design Studio switched from gocco to letterpress for her calendar this year, and it's absolutely beautiful!  But there are only about 15 left (and it's definitely a one-time limited edition run), so hurry over to Sarah's etsy shop to pick up your copy:

Catlin Keegan's 2010 calendar features her beautiful signature illustration and hand lettering, and is printed in a wheel format with space to write birthdays and other important dates below each month:

Albertine Press took a slightly different direction with this year's letterpress calendar, incorporating overlapping illustrations with a unique color scheme for each month — requiring to 29 (!!) separate color runs for the calendar — with a lovely result.  Each calendar has rounded corners and is hung with fine ribbon and printed onto 100% recycled paper:

Also, I'm afraid I kind of lied — I'm going to have to break my calendar coverage into a 3-part round-up since there are so many calendars!  I'm working on gathering the rest together now and will be back with Part 3 of the 2010 calendar round-up a bit later this week.  In the meantime, if you'd like to catch up on the previous calendar round-up, you can find Part 1 right here.

2010 Calendar Round-Up, Part I

Okay folks, it's that time of year again — calendar round-ups!  There are tons of great calendars for 2010 and I have no idea how I'm going to choose my own calendars this year, but I've tried to pull together a few of the best calendars from my favorite designers, as well as a couple of new additions for 2010.  Just as a warning, this is a pretty long post, so go ahead and get yourself nice and comfy and ready for some calendar goodness!

2009 Calendar Round-Up

I love, love, love calendars. Last year, calendars were my main holiday present for office colleagues, and I think I ended up with no less than 4 different calendars just for myself.

My favorite calendar from last year was this letterpressed and screenprinted calendar from ilee:

il 430xN.13980290 2009 Calendar Round Upil 430xN.13980291 2009 Calendar Round Up
Trust me when I say that these pictures don’t do this calendar anything close to justice — they’re really just beautiful in person. The new 2009 edition will be available in late September, and I can’t wait to order mine!

Several of these were gifted to colleagues and family:
