2011 Clipboard Calendar

Are you tired of calendar talk yet? I’d be surprised if you haven’t snapped up a 2011 one yet, but just in case you haven’t, this one by designer Carlo Brito is a good choice. It’s so simple and clean, plus, it comes with its own clipboard that you can reuse after 2011 is over.

Le Calendrier en Coton (Cotton Calendar)

Okay, so $300 for a cotton calendar is a little frivolous, yes. Not even throwing in the name ‘by Maison Martin Margiela’ helps soften the blow. But, what would you say if perhaps this cotton calendar becomes table napkins after the year is over? That is the intention after all. Does the novelty of that fact make it any better?

Two Thousand Eleven Calendar

Surely you’ve picked up next year’s calendar by now, right? Either way, consider this cotton cloth calendar as a great keepsake to mark a special day (think a small embroidered circle or heart around the day, or a marker if you’re not handy with a needle). It also comes with 4 tacks to hang and 1 to mark the date.

Cats Let Nothing Darken Their Roar 2011

I keep threatening to get one of these for myself, and I figure I best follow through this year. As usual, each month features strange phrases that have the letters of the month highlighted, making for an unusual text-based artwork above your desk or in your office. Oh, also, this year a small black pencil is included for noting events.

Date Ruler by André Klauser

I posted this a while ago, but seeing as it is now available stateside it’s worth a second look.

If you had the right sort of metal ruler and circular magnets, you might be able to replicate this yourself, or you could just spend £15 and get this one (thereby supporting the designer who thought up the idea in the first place).

T minus 24 hours until the official gift unwrapping begins, so if you’re still rushing around like a chicken with its head cut off, maybe snap some of these up from your local bookstore and call it a day. Moleskines are great, and despite the mixed reviews on this set, they’re pretty much the perfect gift for artists and note takers, or just someone that always seems unorganized (don’t say that to their face though).

Calendar 2010 (Ghin)

Instead of laying out the year in a grid, this one takes a circular approach. Plus, a lunar calendar is fitted in there too, so you’ll know when you’re going to change into a werewolf.

I decided to lay out the calendar on a single page, making it possible to view the whole year at a glance. Thus enabling the viewer to start making new associations between events and time in general. A lunar calendar is integrated into the layout making it easy to see full and new moons. –

Each Calendar is printed on 170gsm semi gloss paper.
