Kill your darlings
calendars about collecting for printing company Flevodruk Harderwijk, 2003
For Flevodruk I developed a series of calendars about collections. A different one for each season. Each calendar had its own format, printing technique and paper. The themes were very diverse: posters from the Cats Cabinet, a collection of insects, African radios etc. The theme of collecting always fascinated me. What inspires someone to collect and what do they collect then? Cigar labels, postage stamps, football cards? Animals of the same species? Stones of the same colour? It looks like a moving attempt to get a grip on the chaotic universe in which we are forced to live. I collect clothes hangers!
This is the first calendar in the series about collecting.
