Created by designer Kit Hinrichs, the 365 Calendar draws attention to the variety and aesthetic quality of type itself by making the typeface the primary graphic element on each page.
The calendar features twelve unique typefaces, includes descriptions of the type, shares a biography of each designer and notes all major holidays and the birthdays of the type designers on the calendar.
For the 2014 calendar, Hinrichs invited 12 world-renowned international members of the illustrious Alliance Graphique Internationale to nominate some of their favorite typefaces. The AGI is an elite international professional design organization formed in 1951. Their choices range from the traditional to the avant-garde, the austere to Old World script flourishes. Stunningly decorative, the 365 Calendar elevates appreciation of typography as an art form.
As seen in Martha Stewart Living, Dwell, Sunset, Lucky and InStyle magazines, the 365 Typography Calendar is coveted by designers, architects and lovers of modern design everywhere.
