Beautiful wall calendars?
December 25, 2013 9:01 AM   Subscribe

I am looking for a really beautiful and distinctive 2014 wall calendar. Has anyone seen any really great calendars this year? Whatever I get will have to be available via mail order, because the calendar selection in my town is fairly limited.

The calendar I bought for myself for next year is this Fantasy Author Calendar. It makes my office both lovelier and nerdier and the proceeds go to two good causes.

I'm waiting for Underwater Dogs to come in the mail. Beautiful, distinctive, and hilarious.

I've had several years of the Extraordinary Chickens calendars, and it's surprisingly beautiful.

I have gone to Paper Source the last few years. This is the one I have. There is also this version if you like more art less calendar. They have a few other nice calendar selections there too.

There are many lovely choices at Etsy--check out what comes up by searching for "letterpress calendar".

We got the Painted Hands calendar for next year. I thought it was pretty neat.

I have the 2nd Paper Source calendar that sadtomato links to above, and I love it. Each page also has instructions/cutting lines on the back to turn it into different things (folders, folded boxes, etc) when the month is over!

This blog, associated with an online store, does big lists of calendars as well as other papergoods.

I bought this calendar by artist Nikki McClure and it's gorgeous.

The description:
Nikki's calendars have become a staple in kitchens, offices and schools. Each image is an original papercut, cut from a single piece of paper.

Nikki features strong images of everyday life, each with a powerful verb that inspires to action.

This year's verbs and phrases: Vibrate, Honor, Delegate, Matter, Lunch, Befriend, Ache, Inhabit, Chance, Save, Agree and Stay.

Printed on acid-free paper using soy ink in Olympia, Washington by union-labor.

Size: 12" x 12"

One of my favorite design curation blogs, Design Milk, published a post recently on beautiful and intriguingly formatted calendars for 2014. Some beautifully designed "traditional" flat paper calendars as well as some cool/weird ones (cross-stitched calendars? tea towel calendars? calendars on fabric that you unravel with the passage of time? bubble wrap calendars?).

It's very much a statement piece, but we love our Stendig calendars.

Photographer Tim Davis does a beautiful abstract image calendar every year; I have given many as gifts, they are high quality and beautifully presented. You can order them directly from his website.
