Over the past few years, calendar design in independent stationery circles, at least has grown to become an art, and I’m sure I’m not alone in anticipating what fantastic concepts, illustrations, and design I’ll see in the new batch of calendars every year. I’ve featured several 2011 calendars so far in my highlights from this year’s stationery show, but there are plenty that I haven’t shown you yet. Here’s a peek at what will be gracing walls and desks in 2011.
Letterpress Volcano and Tidal Wave calendars from Oddball Press, available in September.
Wall calendars from Amy Smyth Made It, with plenty of space to write. I know how many of you will like that!
