About

I have updated my diploma piece I designed at the Visual Communication department of the Hungarian Academy of Art and Design to create my 2017 Anamorphic Calendar - combining the tools of sculpture and graphics. The anamorphosis process has been used by art since the Renaissance.

The essence of the method is that it can only be interpreted for the viewer from a certain point of view. On the wall calendar, whose pages can be turned, 12 pictures are “pieced together” on the surface of a cone mirror. The diploma piece was published together with an application for a patent (WO9819291).

The size of the calendar is 330x460mm (13x18in). It is made of excellent-quality paper (200g/m²) with the most up-to-date printing technology. At the centre of the illustration every sheet is cut out in a circular manner; in it we can place the cone with the mirror surface that the package includes assembled. Cone: Pre-cut self-adhesive mirror foil. (picture: the cone-net cutting tool)

You only have to insert the cone to the inner side of the backboard of the calendar, and you can already hang in on the wall with the cone at eye-level:

We perform phases 1. and 2., and deliver the cone assembled; you only have to glue it to its place. 3. Turn the paper back from the glued flaps. 4. Place the calendar on a flat surface, turn back its sheets and insert the cone on the inner side of the backboard. 5. Hang the calendar on the wall so that the apex of the cone is exactly at the eye-level. 6. Looking straight into the cone you can see the illustrations.

Full production of the project is done in the EU. The components are made in Budapest, while the assembly and packaging are conducted at our business premise in Pomáz, near the capital.

We will ship complete units from here to anywhere around the world. All units will be shipped in a custom, reusable slotted carton with form-fitting high-density polyethylene foam for maximum protection. All orders will include Hungarian POST online parcel tracking.

European Union: €15. Hungarian POST Priority Mail (0-2kg) 3-4 day delivery once shipped.

United States: €17. Hungarian POST Prority Mail (0-2kg) 4-10 day delivery once shipped.

Other Countries: €19. Hungarian POST Priority Mail (0-2kg) 4-21 day delivery once shipped.

Additional duties/taxes may apply depending on your destination country. (except EU countries)

The shaping of the timeline was influenced by a very important factor: it has to arrive before the coming Christmas. This is a fundamental aim of mine, and that is why I launched the project in early spring. This way we are prepared for production even in case of larger series. The shipping of the products will take place in the chronological order of the pledges.

Hungarian delivery costs are rather high for the price of the product. To compensate for that, I want give the most possible for one delivery fee. This is made possible by large number of copies:

50K - FREE additional CALENDAR with CONE MIRROR and SHIPPING!

If reaching €50 000 EUR a further calendar with a cone mirror will be placed into every package for the same delivery fee. (2017 - 2018)

25K - EACH CALENAR printed on BOTH SIDE of sheets: 2017 and 2018

If reaching €25 000 EUR the months of the year 2018 will be printed on the back of the sheets of each calendar. (2017 and 2018 – a total of 24 printed pages)

I'm proud of my earlier successful project: Compact Fishing Systems
