Dear Backer,

I hope you are still enjoying your Typographic Wall Calendar. I just wanted to let you know that the 2016 edition is done and I am again on Kickstarter raising funds for the production. This is what the 2016 edition looks like:

The campaign ends December 7th, so that I can send out all prints to arrive before the holidays.

Many Backers asked for a digital version of the calendar. at first I was sceptical of the idea somebody else would do a print somewhere on the globe and I would have no control over the reproduction quality, the paper, the finish etc… But HEY were living in the 21st century and the time of the internet. Why not! Aside from the printed edition that will be shipped from Germany across the globe – all backers (1€ or more) will receive a PDF so you can print out your own copy.

If you are looking for something more permanent on your wall than a calendar, I also added these unique SATOR squares as rewards to the campaign at a special Kickstarter price.

…But what is a SATOR square?

A SATOR Square is a latin Palindrome. The keys read the same backwards and forwards, from bottom to top. As a result the SATOR Square evokes a calming sense of order and complete symmetry. The earliest datable square was found in the ruins of Pompeii, that was buried in the ash of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79 almost 2000 years ago.

 I hope you enjoyed reading this, and I would be very happy to send you a 2016 Typographic Wall Calendar. Here is the link:
