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:
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:
letterpress calendar from jhiner1978
offset calendar from happify
offset calendar from creative thursday
Other amazing calendars available include:
This very cool (even if it isn’t, strictly speaking, paper) wood calendar from night owl paper goods
This slightly spooky letterpress calendar from lizard press
This fun and vintage-inspired letterpress calendar from YeeHaw
This eco-chic calendar by artist Cat Seto via See Jane Work
This truly lovely four seasons letterpress calendar from elum designs
Many of the 2009 calendars aren’t yet available, so I’ll continue to feature some of my favorites as they get released over the next few weeks.
