DESIGN: Feel-Good, Artful Gifts For Everyone

2013 npr wall calendar

It’s that time of year again, when the yearly gift exchange and Xmas shopping starts lighting up our radar. The NPR Wall Calendar for 2013 is one of those few gifts that make you, your pocketbook, your concscience and everyone who receives it – just plain feel good. This is a beautifully designed calendar with well selected art. The front cover graphics are clean and crisp – with influences of vintage typography and old-school ephemera. It truly is an artful, feel-good gift for everyone.

You feel good because you are helping support public radio and let’s face it, where would we be without their daily insights and broadcasts? It’s only $15 and is chock full of fanciful imagery by selected artists. And you can give it to almost anyone because everyone needs  a calendar. It’s one of those versatile gifts to have on hand, just in case Uncle Fester makes a surprise holiday visit. (The best part? If he doesn’t show up, you get to keep it on your wall!)

We’ve posted just a few of the wonderful artworks here. Each individual artist was asked to answer the question “What does NPR look like to you?”

“Every page of the NPR Wall Calendar features original art by renowned illustrators who happen to be NPR fans themselves. In addition to being asked to depict their relationship with NPR, each artist contributes a few words of background describing their inspiration for the creation.” – Via NPR

The calendar measures 9 x 12″ and has a pinhole for wall hanging. It is made with the environment in mind out of well-managed forests, controlled sources and recycled wood or fiber in the United States.
