Stendig Calendar

433540815bf4

Designed in 1966 by Massimo Vignelli, this calendar became an instant classic, added to the Design Collection of the Museum of Modern Art that same year.

The calendar measures three by four feet.

Note that it comes in the European style, where Monday is the first day of the week.

Twelve sheets, one for each month, printed in black ink on white sixty pound weight offset paper stock.

In random order, the calendar sheets for some months are reverse printed, producing a black background with white letters and numerals.

The sheets are perforated along a line just under the binding strip to allow them to be torn away neatly.

Removed sheets are useful for wrapping gifts and craft projects.

The binding strip of the calendar has three matte black finish metal eyelets for easy hanging.

Until recently, this calendar was hard to find for the hoi polloi like me; now it's available online here.

$28, plus $6 shipping.

Quite reasonably priced, considering its size and the fact that it's a design icon.

Why, why??

Why is there such a limited supply of the Stendig available for purchase?
