Lately I’ve seen quite a few posts about 2009 calendar options. And although I mostly feel it’s a little bit early, I can’t help but be excited. I normally buy several each year, usually because I have an extremely difficult time making a decision. For 2008 I purchased one from Black Pearl Press (which I can’t seem to find a link to at the moment), the Noa Bembibre wall calendar (2006 version shown), and a third from Manifesto Letterpress.
This year I’m having a hard time restraining myself from purchasing anything just yet, because I know more and more will be released as we get closer to the holidays. But here are a few on my list so far:
I just came across the work of this designer via Paper Crave and I love everything about it. Her etsy shop is full of wonderful paper goods — especially this 2009 Sea Calendar—and I now have another awesome blog to add to my list!
This well-known stationer recently relaunched their site, as most of you probably already know. From the looks of the images, they will have 3 different versions available, which is exciting (and also horrible for my wallet, because I’ll probably want one of each). I haven’t been able to find too much other information, but I did notice you can currently purchase one of the calendar designs right here.
I always love whatever Egg Press does, and this year they’ve produced a letterpress calendar as well as an offset version. And although I’m usually innately drawn to letterpress, I am definitely gravitating towards the offset version. The colors and patterns and designs we just more “me”.
I’m also very much looking forward to Studio on Fire’s 2009 Calendar — I have one from a couple of years ago. Each year they chose a few colors and a theme, and work with different artists to create each month’s design. See the 2008 version right here.
