We’ve been talking about perpetual calendars, but what do we mean by perpetual?
Some call them birthday calendars, anniversary calendars or remembrance calendars. Unlike ordinary calendars that display a date with a corresponding day of the week, perpetual calendars show the dates of a month in a list rather than a grid. Eliminating the days of the week make these calendars functional forever, or at least until you feel like exchanging it for new images.
Here’s an example of what a page from a perpetual calendar (Birthdays and Special Events Calendar Monet Paintings by Nouvelles Images) looks like:
A lot of birthday calendars also include an extra page for notes. Donald Verger’s new perpetual/birthday calendars include a lovely note page for writing down important thoughts or events. Verger’s perpetual calendars measure 5.5″x11″ and are wire-bound on top, making hanging easy.
