A flirty, artistic calendar revealing the sexy side of reading.
Reading is quite sexy. And frankly we can't believe it doesn't get more attention.
Not only do we think people would be happier if they read more, but we think the world would be a better place if it had more readers in it!
We understand reading is often seen as boring. A book doesn't necessarily grab your attention as quickly as a movie. A book isn't flashy like a video game and it definitely can't do as much as your smart phone.
But reading places the whole world within your grasp. It empowers your mind, comforts your soul and provides an escape. What's more sexy than a person who reads?
The goal of the 2012 Reading is Sexy Calendar is to promote reading in a creative, appealing way. Five of San Diego's finest professional photographers have donated their talent and have been shooting for the calendar since January. In April we will chose the 12 best photographs for the calendar. Graphic Artist Nate Khouli (Damascus Media) will donate his time and talent to design a hard and digital copy of the calendar.
The money we are raising on Kickstarter will be used to pay for the printing of 3,000 calendars, which will be released Fall 2011. Proceeds from calendar sales will fund library projects in print-poor communities through Traveling Stories, a 501c3 nonprofit in San Diego.
The 2012 Reading is Sexy Calendar will be available on the Traveling Stories website (http://www.TravelingStories.org) beginning September 15! However, there is an opportunity to get one earlier! Come to the Calendar Release Party on September 14 at The W Hotel in downtown San Diego. More information available on http://TravelingStories.org!
