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)
