Thanks to all of you who have submitted your wonderful 2011 calendars so far! Today is part three of my super duper calendar roundup, and given the number of great calendar submissions that I’m receiving, I know that there will be at least a few more rounds after this one. If you’re looking for even more 2011 calendar options, you can check out parts one and two.
First up today are these fantastic letterpress calendars featuring 1950’s era illustrations by Jim Flora and printed by Yee Haw Industries. Tear off wall calendars are available in three designs: Swingin’ Sax, Stardust Moon, and Boogie-Beat Drummer:
Also available is a poster-sized letterpress calendar, featuring Flora’s 1954 woodcut illustration, Sheffield Island:
I’m loving all of the vivid, destination-inspired illustrations in JHill Design’s 2011 “Places I Have Never Been” calendars. Each month features a different place, a pattern inspired by the destination, and little tidbits of information about each. For the wall calendar, you can cut off the date portions of each month and frame the patterns as art prints.
And the 2011 “Places I Have Never Been” desk calendar can be transformed into patterned postcards when you’re finished with it:
Mufninc.’s 2011 printable calendar features a different, original floral pattern by Pauline Grayson for each month, and the patterned reverse sides can be used as art prints when the month is finished. All of the patterns coordinate, so you can hang them in a group, if you’d like.
Paper Squid’s 2011 poster/wall calendar features an original, dynamic illustration by Karyna Amador in your choice of five different colors. Custom colors can be requested, too! The calendar is printed on eco-friendly, 100% tree free cotton rag paper, and when the year is finished, you can cut off the date portion of the calendar and frame the illustration as an art print.
I’m loving all of the lovely, organic watercolor illustrations featured in Flora Douville’s 2011 wall calendar. Available in English or French.
Egg Press always has fantastic calendars, and this year’s offset printed desk calendar is no exception. Each month features a different super cool illustration, and on the reverse is a coordinating illustration with an area for your notes.
Linda & Harriett always does a bang up job in the calendar department, too, and this year’s options are absolutely terrific. The 2011 letterpress wall calendar features a different patterned illustration each month, and after the month is finished you can cut off the top of the page and use the patterned area as a postcard!
And the Linda & Harriett Perpetual Birthday Calendar is a brilliant idea, especially for those of us (erm, myself included) who have trouble remembering birthdays. That hot pink ink is awesome, too!
Lizard Press’ 2011 Luna Letterpress Calendar is gorgeous! The calendar features a Shakespearean quote and highlights the date of the full moon each month, giving the name of the full moon, too. The deep, rich navy backdrop is stunning.
