Designer Alec Thibodeau just unveiled his newest letterpress-printed lunar calendar design for 2017. The calendar is calibrated for the Eastern time zone but is accurate to within a day for anywhere in the Northern Hemisphere. The piece was designed, drawn, and printed in Providence, Rhode Island with help from DWRI Letterpress. Limited edition prints are available through Thibodeau’s website. (via This Isn’t Happiness)

New Highlights from Artist Tatsuya Tanaka’s Daily Miniature Photo Project 

earth

Japanese art director Tatsuya Tanaka (previously) continues to entertain us with his ongoing miniature photo project, now stretching into its fifth year. Tanaka uses office supplies, food, and other found objects that he utilizes as set pieces or backdrops for miniature inhabitants. You would think his desire to continue the project would diminish after surpassing 1,000 photos or that his imagination would be completely tapped, but that’s clearly not the case. You can see new images from the Miniature Calendar project every single day on Instagram and Facebook.

Highlights from Artist Tatsuya Tanaka’s Daily Miniature Photo Project 

mini-1

Photographer and art director Tatsuya Tanaka has a fascination with all things tiny and has an uncanny ability to repurpose everyday objects as set pieces or tools for the inhabitants of his miniature world. For his project Miniature Calendar, Tanaka has been stretching his imagination to its limits nearly every day for the last four years. A tape dispenser becomes the bar for a restaurant, a circuit board is suddenly a rice paddy field, and the notes of a musical score become the hurdles for a track race. Individually, the photos might invoke a smile or chuckle as you get the joke, but when viewed collectively they morph into a fascinating study on Tanaka’s breadth of creativity.

New photos from Miniature Calendar are published every day on Instagram and Facebook. Tanaka also published a book of earlier miniature photos in a book titled Miniature Life. (via Spoon & Tamago)

Back in the day I used to do a nice roundup of cool calendars, but didn’t have time this year. Luckily Design Milk, Cool Hunting, and Freshome have you covered if you’re still looking for a way to track 2014 on paper. Etsy also has a solid list of calendars that includes this awesome DIY Printable Paper Typewriter Calendar (alternate design) in the form of a miniature typewriter from the folks at Mumbai-based SkyGoodies. It’s a downloadable PDF that you print, cut and fold for just $5. Fun! (via Green Chair Press)

Intricate Laser-Cut Calendar and Alphabet by Nando Costa 

Two exquisite laser-cut paper pieces by Brazilian born, Portland-based Nando Costa. The first is a laser-cut calendar that he designed in collaboration with his wife, Linn Olofsdotter that’s made from 140lb paper and takes nearly an hour to cut. The second is an alphabet poster that measures roughly 12″ square and features images of vegetation, insects, the sky and forests. Simply impeccable work and reasonably priced. Lots more fun stuff in his Etsy shop.
