Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video An overview of the wall calendar project, part of Designing a Calendar.
The first of our three calendars is a typical…wall calendar, that would hang from a hook and that…on the top page, there will be a picture,…on the bottom page there will be the calendar grid.…I've chosen pictures that fit together thematically, they're all my own images.…And I've tried to sort of convey a sense…of the passing of the seasons through these images.…I've made them all black and white, to stylistically tie them…all in, and in choosing the images, I made sure that I…only chose images that were taken in the month that they are representing.…
So, for example, the picture for December was taken in December.…At the end, we have three pages, the first…of which is just a grid of those images, then…we have the calendar credit, and you might include here,…some sort of promotional message, and then the back cover.…Now let's…just first of all switch to the front cover.…There's the front cover.…It turned out I had two pictures of this tree taken in different seasons.…So I decided to bookend, if you will, the whole project with the summer version.…
