Nava Today Calendar

If you’ve been a loyal reader you’re no stranger to perpetual calendars; I’ve documented every decent one that I’ve come across. Here’s another one to add to the list, by none other than Enzo Mari for Nava. Change the plastic cards according to the day/date/month, year after year.

Size: 14.5″ W x 4.25″ H x 3″ D

Calendreco Wall Calendar

This calendar was first featured on our site back in ’08, and, as is often the case, needs its info updated. The Calendreco by Dessi Ivanova* is a great alternative to the somewhat ubiquitous Stendig Calendar, and as it is perpetual, you’ll be set year after year. Three headers give you options on weekday combinations, so a simple changeout each month is the only lifting-of-finger(s) you’ll need to do. If you should ever need to dispose of it (unlikely), it is 100% recyclable.

365 Calendar

Ah, who doesn’t love perpetual calendars? I’ve long had a habit of posting decent ones, and I’m not about to stop now, especially since this one is super affordable. The only trouble with calendars like this one is you have to remember to update it each day (if you rely on it exclusively, that is).

2012 Stendig Calendar

Seeing as there were Christmas trees at the local plant nursery this weekend (crazy), I suppose it’s not too early to lock in your order of a 2012 Stendig Calendar. Christmas trees aside, these classic calendars are produced in limited numbers, so if you’ve your eye on one for 2012, you’d do well to get it sooner rather than later.

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).

2011 Animal Calendar

Wha?? 2011 calendars are coming out already? At least these six white paper animals are cute, and sort of diffuses the panic of yet another year creeping up oh-so-fast. A one-month calendar is on each side of every animal, with simple assembly required (no glue or scissors needed).
