Here are the calendars I bought for 2011:
For work, I picked up the "1,000 Places to See Before You Die Page-A-Day Desk Calendar". Sure, I haven't travelled much lately, but I'm keen to learn little tidbits about geography, and the pictures look pretty.
Here's the giant poster calendar I picked up for the living room. I still know very little about Ton Schulten beyond the wikipedia bit I quoted in 2008: "His work has great commercial success, but is critically considered to be lightweight." Ah well. I'll enjoy the bright, stylized landscapes anyway.
Instead of the usual Archambeault Kentucky calendar, I went with one that's just nature photography. "Trees" rank high on the things I miss about Kentucky.
Here's this year's Gorey calendar. I don't think I've ever actually *read* The Deranged Cousins, but it should still be a nice bit of décor.
Yay! I've been tempted to buy an architecture calendar for the last two years running; I finally made good on the threat.
I've been kind of cycling through the major 20th-century abstract artists from year to year (dammit, why is there no Stuart Davis calendar?), and this year, it's Kandinsky's turn.
