Most of the calendars I feature on my blog are meant, implicitly or explicitly, for women. These aren’t. Whether it’s Andy Warhol’s date book devoted to cars, or the colorful images from Charley Harper and James Rizzi – I don’t think many men will be ashamed to walk around with most of these pop art planners.
Shown above is the cover of the The Art of Andy Warhol Softcover Planner. One of the pages is featured to the right.
Pop artist Andy Warhol is a source of continuing fascination and visual excitement. While he first worked as an illustrator, he grew most famous for appropriating images from popular culture and incorporating them into his paintings and silkscreen prints. Abrams’ Warhol datebook features more than fifty full-color images from the 1950s through the 1980s. It highlights the artist’s most fabulous and recognizable works of art along with a rich and rare selection of drawings, photographs, illustrations, and quotations.

Frank Lloyd Wright Planner
Shadows were the brushwork of the ancient architect. Let the modern now work with light. Many of the towers and textile-block facades designed by Frank Lloyd Wright sport handsome shadows, but his work in glass and other translucent materials neatly fits his modernist dictum. “What the people of our country need most,” said Frank Lloyd Wright, “is beauty of environment.” He spent his life filling that need. In an age of breakneck industrialization, Wright drew on technological innovations to create works in glass, metal, and other media that transcended strict functionality.
Sometimes clearly representational, often purely geometric, these designs dance between figuration and abstraction. This Calendar has 57 weekly grids and 13 monthly grids. There’s a soft cover with flaps and it is wire bound so it will lay flat.
