Isn’t this what a desk calendar should look like? In black-and-white and even though it was designed in 1967 it still looks simple and clear. This is the Timor calendar produced by Danese, the Italian design brand founded in 1957 in Milan. Available in English, French, Italian and German and in black & white version.
But beware; this is one of those calendars that really demands discipline from it’s owner, you have to set your alarm clock to adjust it every morning.
Oh, for a healthy €112,- you can order it here.
