Along with New Year’s resolutions, gym memberships and holiday store returns there is always one more thing to do – buy a new calendar. To us it is like a clean slate ready to be filled with great escapes, movie nights and ever exciting doctor appointments. So why not take it up a notch passing on the ‘Animal Babies of 2013’ and go for something a bit more impressive for your work space?
Connor’s Tiger Calendar fits the bill. Each month is printed on it’s own card and the 12 cards come with a sturdy little brass easel to prop on your desk to impress friends, family and colleagues alike. Co-Founder of Connor, Justin Felber told us, “Our Four Season’s Tiger Calendar is a real labor of love, taking almost six months from the initial sketch design to final printing. It is a painstaking process – a multi-colored stamping, hand-engraved in Paris by our master engraver. A real work of art in every sense.”
Connor is one of the top stationery brands around, working with a vast library of unique vintage dies, crests and monograms, some dating back to the late 1800s. Everything is engraved by hand in France, by a method used for over two centuries to create impressions with serious detail. Check them out for one-of-a-kind invitations, thank you notes, menus and place cards too. But for now, just add a little growl to your desktop to kick off the New Year with a roar.
