10. Creative Calendar 2010
Creative Calendar 2010 By Andrew Ackroyd. The typographical treatment of the calendar is based on the instantly recognizable eye charts, familiar to anyone who has visited opticians. The individual days can be identified using a magnetic magnifying glass. The back page will be a magnetic sheet which the magnifying glass will stick to. The pages and magnetic sheet will be wiro-bound together at the top, and there will also be a hole in the middle for the calendar to be hung from.

11. Timor Perpetual Calendar
Timor perpetual calendar by Enzo Mari. Inspired by the childhood memory of train signage, the timor is an interactive flip calendar that will instantly give your desk a retromodern face-lift.

12. Ink Calendar
Ink Calendar designed by Spanish designer Oscar Diaz is an unusual calendar that uses the capillary action of ink spreading across paper to display the date. Each day the ink spreads across a sheet of paper of a month displaying new date – the ink is absorbed slowly and therefore numbers are displayed every day. So you need to change paper and ink every month. Moreover the inks are of different colors, depending on our perception of the weather on that month (3 shades of green in spring, orange and red in summer, yellow in autumn, dark blue in December).
