As much as the ical's ability to link the scheduled minutiae of my life to my ipad, my macbook and my iphone has changed my life, nothing compares to that good old feeling of marking something down on a calendar and counting the days down till to that special date. Now, we may not have any advent calenders (by far, my favorite kind) but we have a ton of quite gorgeous time keepers on hand. Here are a few:
Atherton Lin, Across the Sea
Edward Gorey, The Deranged Cousins
William Morris, Arts & Crafts Designs
Nikki McClure, Endeavor
What I love best about beautiful calenders is that they double as art: every month a new piece!
