Burning Man Calendar

The 2012-2013 Burning Man Calendar was vertically oriented with a wire-o binding, could be used like a book or hung on the wall

The 2012-2013 Burning Man Calendar was produced with a wire-o binding down the side like a book. When the calendar was opened, it became a full square layout. Instead of a monthly view, each spread contained two weeks of calendar grid so it was a bit like a week planner, but there were holes punched in the corners of the calendar so that the whole thing could be hung on the wall like a wall calendar, so it was a hybrid of both styles.

This was the first and only time, the front cover image was repeated on the back cover of the calendar. For this edition, the placement of the images and the calendar grid was varied from top, middle, or bottom and that allowed for the inclusion of vertical and double spread imagery.

Deep and heartfelt gratitude to all the photographers, artists, camps, mutant vehicle owners, regional contacts, performers, artifact creators and other contributors to the project, each of whom gave permission for their work to be included and was thoroughly credited in the project and sent copies of the final product.

All but the first edition of the Burning Man Calendars were produced in partnership with designer Arin Fishkin. You can learn more about the nuances and full history of this project in this post on the Burning Man journal.
