The All Year Round Calendar by Copenhagen based architect Lene Mirdal is an enormous circular grid that accounts for every month, week, day and hour of the entire year. Further, the entire calendar is color-coded to match the season with purples and blues for the cold winter months, and orange and yellows for spring and summer. The whole thing is printed on 27″ x 27″ (70cm) matte paper and is available here.
Alec Thibodeau’s “Pineal Grigio” measures 19″ by 11.75″, the exact same dimensions as his 2008, 2009, and 2010 lunar calendars. The limited edition letterpress printed lunar calendar details the 365 phases of the moon for 2011. A continuation of the past three years’ calendar illustrations, the piece is the fourth installment in Alec’s Lunar Calendar Series. The calendar is based on the skies of Providence, Rhode Island but will function accurately anywhere in the Eastern Time Zone and to within a day of accuracy for any location in the Northern Hemisphere. Special illustrations represent New Moon, First Quarter Moon, Full Moon and Third Quarter Moon for each four week cycle. Clouds serve as placeholders in months with fewer than 31 days.
And it glows. In the freaking dark. And is also sold out. Emoticon sad face. On a related note the #1 item on Colossal that drives search traffic is this 2011 Moon Phase Calendar by Irwin Glusker available right this second at MoMa. (via poster district)
If I was in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey and needed a super minimalist calendar and planner to tack up inside my spacecraft en route to Jupiter, I would probably bring along the Wandkalender & Wandplaner 2011 by Populäre Produkte (for sale here). The calendar and planner come with 100 sticky notes to mark the day when your buddies are supposed to be woken from cryogenic hibernation, or when it’s time to pay the heating bill. One side in German, the other in English. (via design milk).

This 2011 calendar is a promotional piece for Harald Geisler‘s typography studio in Frankfurt. The hundreds of keyboard keys are photographed row by row to decrease lens distortion and reproduce the keys at actual size. The resulting print will be about 2′ x 3′.
