It’s finally that time of the year, time to share bunches of wonderful new 2011 calendar designs, and boy, there are so, so many beautiful calendars this year. I probably say that every year, but it’s true! Calendar design has been raised to an artform over the past few years, and I look forward with increased anticipation every year.
Ilee always creates something spectacular, and their 2011 letterpress and silkscreen calendar is filled with wonderful imagery, including a festive rabbit to ring in the new year (2011 is the year of the rabbit) and an October moon that glows in the dark. Awesome!
Already receiving plenty of buzz (and deservedly so) is this beautiful, modern, metallic gold foil and warm grey letterpress calendar by Seesaw Letterpress. I love that each page is perforated, so you can tear off the calendar part and frame the illustrations.
INK + WIT’s 2011 letterpress Totem Animals at Play calendar features a menagerie of amazing patterns and animal illustrations.
I have a huge owl obsession, so naturally I’m loving the 2011 Owl Lover calendar. This calendar is exciting because 1) it’s free!, and 2) it features downloadable owl illustrations from 30 talented illustrators. Choose your 12 favorite owlies, as well as the month that you’d like each owl to represent, print, and you have your own custom 2011 owl calendar!
Satsuma Press always creates such a beautiful calendar. The 2011 letterpress calendar is filled with soft and lovely illustrations to carry you through the year.
Inspired by the colors and shapes found in nature, Laura Macchia has created a vibrant, illustrated 2011 calendar, which features a different illustration each month.
And this is just the beginning. Look for plenty of other calendar roundups in the coming weeks, and I’ll be starting A Letterpress Christmas 2010 soon, too!
