We were intrigued by the idea of doing an issue that was practical, that served an everyday purpose and as a daily source of inspiration. CALENDAR was all that and more. For the case, we came up with a CinemaScope panoramic panel made of Plexiglas, the arched design of a television screen enabling it to stand upright. The issue became a real object that one might come across in the home section of any store. It gave us great pleasure to walk into an office six months or so later and see it on someone's desk, the current week on display. It was difficult, but fun, to assign fifty-two weeks to fifty-two different artists. Of course, all the main holidays went first: a Mario Testino New Year, an Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin Valentine's Day, a Ruben Toledo Easter, a Marc Jacobs Fourth of July, a Mats Gustafson Thanksgiving,nan Ellen von Unwerth Christmas, and a Francois Berthoud New Year's Eve. The backside of each page featured a Bibliography of Fashion by Richard Martin, who was the curator of the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
