Calendarbook 2011 and giveaway

Some shots of the Calendarbook 2011 in progress, some in Rome, some on my studio/blue table. This is maybe the real treasure I brought back from the trip, a huge, heavy package, in my suitcase. I'm mailing some of the last copies of the limited edition this week and I would like to start a giveaway with the winner to be announced on January 31st. Just leave a comment on the calendar below.
The self-promotional Calendarbook is an Edizioni Almenodue collaboration, every year with a new artist. For 2011 the illustrations are by British Claudia Boldt of Cloud Cuckoo studio, on a accordion book measuring 8 x 27 inches. It's a progressive calendar, that also lists the sequence of the 365 days. I so discovered that my birthday is on the 207th day of the year. This brilliant idea was by my collaborator Silvana Amato. The font we used is still unpublished, by type designer Alessandro Colizzi. Called Neon, is a pleasure to see it printed, even though we only had capitals and numbers to work with. The accordion book is tie together with waxed linen thread in beautiful teal color to match the illustrations. The image of the London bus, we repeated on the card, is one of my favorite. Let me know what you think!

I love the calendar, and what an interesting format it is! I think Bob is my favorite character on the whole thing.

Beautiful. Your talk about a "progressive calendar" reminded of my years in the Air Force when we routinely used the Julian calendar (what you call a progressive calendar). I had forgotten all about using it. I'm thinking now that I'll start using it in my blog posts. Fun. Thanks for the reminder!

Swooning--the subtle details + loveliness, there is a 'quietness' to your work that speaks volumes to me on a very personal level.
